Routine Examinations 
Occupy Much Time 
Y Cabinets Are Hosts 

On Wednesday morning, September 
14 1938, one hundred and ten fresh- 
men and twenty-one new students 
matriculated at L. V. C, and there- 
with began the series of programs to 
aid them in orientating themselves to 
college life. 

That same morning Dr. Silverman 
and Dr. Monteith, assisted by Dr. 
Amos R. Black, of the college faculty, 
examined the male newcomers to de- 
termine whether they were physically 
able to undergo the strain of a four 
years' duration, more commonly 
known as "getting an education." The 
members of the opposite sex (female) 
were given the "once-over" by Miss 
Wood assisted by Miss Henderson. 

The scholastic examinations began 
Wednesday at 2:00 P. M., when Dr. 
0. Edgar Reynolds gave the psycho- 
logical test which all new students 
were required to take. The second 
exam put before the freshmen was 
the mathematics test given at 10:30 
A. M., Thursday by Dr. Amos R. 
Black, head of the Mathematics de- 
partment. The foreign language test 
was given the same day at 2:45 P.M., 
and the last exam, English, was given 
Friday morning at 9:15 by Dr. 
George G. Struble. Saturday at 10:00 
A. M., Freshmen who had matricu- 
lated late were given the opportunity

Philo Smoker Held 
For Frosh To-night 

The Philokosmian Literary Society 
will hold its annual smoker for the 
freshmen and new students tonight

Hall. This is the first event on this 
year's rushing calendar. All faculty 
members of the society have been in-

All non-society men ought avail 
themseleves of this opportunity to ob- 
serve the society at work. 

East Penna. Conference 
Held In College Church 

Lebanon Valley Alumni 
To Be Ordained Tonight 

The Annville United Brethren 
Church has been the host this week 
to the ministers and delegates of the 
one hundred thirty-ninth annual ses- 
sion of the East Pennsylvania Con- 
ference. This session opened with the 
conference committee meetings on 
Monday, September 26, 1938; well- 
planned, inspirational services under 
the direction of prominent, capable 
leaders of the United Brethren 
Church were held afternoon and ev- 
ening in the Annville United Breth- 
ren Church on Tuesday, Wednesday 
and Thursday. On Wednesday morn- 
ing Dr. Lynch presented the annual 
report of Lebanon Valley College to 
the conference. At the Wednesday 
evening service Dr. Lynch was pre- 
siding officer and the L. V. C. Conser- 
vatory students gave a musical pro- 
gram. John Zettlemoyer played a vio- 
lin selection and the Glee Club sang 
several selections. 

This conference session will termin- 
ate its activities with this evening's 
service. Having been examined and

Sophs Bow To Frosh In Flag Scrap 

The members of the class of 1942 
got off to an auspicious start in their 
series of interclass clashes with the 
sophs on the night of Monday, Sept. 
19, when they encountered no resist- 
ance from their opponents and won 
the annual Numeral Scrap hands 

The frosh, coached and directed by 
several upperclassmen and under the 
active leadership of a committee com- 
posed of Robert Weiler, Alfred Stev- 
ens and Sheldon McWilliams, had 
about twenty-five men ready for ac- 
tion. President Lennon of the soph- 
omore class, on the other hand, was 
able to turn out only five or six men 
with whom to defend the campus and 
attend to the business of putting up 

After leaving the campus early on 
Monday evening, the frosh were quar- 
tered in the shelter of a hitching 
stable adjoining the church north of 
town, where they were protected from 

the drizzling rain which was falling. 
About ten o'clock the weather clear- 
ed; and those in charge, having learn- 
ed of Lennon's plight, decided on an 
early showdown. 

Accordingly the greenies were 
marched in to the campus in good or- 
der, singing and cheering defiantly. 
Meanwhile the sophs, realizing the 
hopelessness of their situation, made 
no effort to meet the invaders; con- 
sequently the freshmen had only to 
put their traditional enemies to bed, 
hang their banners about the campus, 
and the victory was theirs. Their 
triumph was complete beyond descrip- 
tion, and the humiliation of the class 
of '41 was correspondingly as great. 

The girls of the two classes engag- 
ed in mild hostilities, especially in 
North Hall, but events proved this un- 
necessary. The event had already 
been handed to the frosh beyond any 
possibility of their losing it.

Last Friday evening the Kalozetean 
Literary Society opened its doors to 
the victorious Freshmen inaugurating 
the first of a series of programs de- 
signed to promote a spirit of friend- 
ship on the campus. 

Before a gathering of 150 students 
and professors President Grover Zerbe 
welcomed those present to partake of 
the festivities and thanked the com- 
mittee who made arrangements for 
such a delightful meeting. The pro- 
gram follows: 

Saxophone Solo, "Nola," by Donald 

Vocal Solo, "When Irish Eyes Are 
Smiling," by Ralph Manwiller.

Piano Solos, "Two Bagatelles," 
'Blue Danube," "Devilish Inspiration" 
by Prof. Merle Freeland. 

Several members of Clio and Del-

Clionians Hold Hike 
For Freshmen Girls 

This afternoon at four-thirty Clio 
members and all freshman girls left 
from North Hall for their annual 
fall hike. The trail led to Kreider's 
where a program was presented. Fol- 
lowing a few words of welcome from 
the president, Lillian Zubroff, Doro- 
thy Long and Janet Whitesell enacted 
some charades based on popular 
songs. May Mulhollen, Louella 
Schindel, Jean Strickhauser, and 
Joan Cox did a comedy dance. A trio 
composed of Mildred Gangwer, Ar- 
lene Hoffman, and Jean Schqck sang 
several popular songs which were fol- 
lowed by the reading of the Olive 
Branch by the editor, Evelyn Evans, 
who was also in charge of the pro- 
gram. The entertainment was ended 
with group singing led by Lucy Cook. 
Supper was served after the program. 

Margaret Bordwell was in charge 
of invitations. She was assisted by 
Dorothy Long and Janet Whitesell. 

131 Newcomers 
Register For 
Coming Term 

Scholarship Winners, 
Numerous Transfers 
Among The Newcomers 

The new student population on Leb- 
anon Valley College campus this year 
has reached the 131 mark. Of this 
number 110 are freshmen; the remain- 
der consists of special advance stud- 
ents and transfers from various other 
colleges and universities. 

The majority of the students are 
residents of this state. However, there 
are nine from New Jersey, three from 
West Virginia, three from Maryland, 
two from New York, one from Virgin- 
ia, and one from Connecticut. The 
sole representatives of the latter 
states are respectively Naomi Thack- 
er and Alfred Stevens. The six stud- 
ents from Shenandoah College, Day- 
ton, Virginia, lead the list of transfers 
from other institutions among which 
are Bucknell University, Manhattan 
College in New York, Drexel Insti- 
tute, University of Pennsylvania, 
Penn State, Bethany College in West 
Virginia, and Syracuse University in 
New York. 

A few of this student body are here 
on scholarship. The awards were bas- 
ed on the competitive scholarship ex- 
aminations May 7, 1938. Janet Strat- 
ton, Williamsport, Pa., received a full 
tuition scholarship amounting to $1,- 
100.00 or $275.00 per year for four 
years. The $400 scholarship winners 
were Emory Swank, Brunswick, Md.; 
Robert White, Middletown, Pa.; Mild-

Faculty Strengthened 
By Four Major Changes 

Two L. V. C. Graduates 
Return As Professors 

The staff of La Vie Collegienne 
as well as all the other members of 
the student body of Lebanon Valley 
College is happy to "welcome to our 
campus this year four new profess- 
ors, three in the college department 
and one in the conservatory. 

Dr. Paul O. Shettel, who has been 
elected head of the department of 
Philosophy, comes to us from the pas- 
torate of Trinity United Brethren 
Church in Baltimore. He is a native 
Pennsylvanian, son of a retired Unit- 
ed Brethren pastor, Rev. J. A. Shet- 
tel, and one of the outstanding philo- 
sophers and religious thinkers of the 
United Brethren denomination. 

Dr. Shettel received his Bachelor 
of Arts degree from Lebanon Valley 
College in 1918 and his Bachelor of 
Divinity degree from Bonebrake The- 
ological Seminary in 1921. In 1924 
he received his degree of Master of 
Arts in Philosophy from Gettysburg 
College Seminary, and in 1927, his 
degree of Doctor of Sacred Theology 
from Westminster Theological Semi- 
nary, Westminster, Md. Recently Dr.

respect not to walk through a door 
in front of him. The same holds true 
for a junior and a sophomore as well 
as for a senior. A cocky attitude on 
the part of any person is rather de- 
spised by his fellows, and a cocky 
frosh is all the more looked down up- 
on because of his comparative inex- 
perience in college life. A freshman 
who has been labeled as cocky, will 
soon find that he is being ignored and 
left without companionship. The ridi- 
cule of our fellow men is a hard pill 
to swallow and is bitter in its taste. 
Sooner or later he will learn that it 
is easier to keep quiet with eyes and 
ears open and absorb traditions and 
customs which govern all our actions. 
So, freshmen, take sound advice well 
meant and avoid all unpleasantness 
by offering to your elders respect and

At the start of this new school year 
La Vie Collegienne again solicits 
the sincere and whole-hearted coop- 
eration of the student body in making 
this paper a desirable feature of our 
campus life. We wish to voice our 
plea for the sole rights to all news 
which may be exclusive in nature and 
hence may be excellent material for a 

It is the aim of the staff, collect- 
ively and individually, to make this 
year the best and most successful of 
the thirteen years. of La Vie's exist- 
ence. The only way that this end can 
be attained is by the cooperation of 
the entire student body and faculty. 
The frequent stalling of staff report- 
ers usually delays the preparation of 
the copy and oftimes keeps desirable 
news out of print when it has a gen- 
uine flavor. In order to provide you 
with a real news paper and to benefit 
the college, we urge that all organi- 
zation heads and departmental lead- 
ers read the mast head to acquaint 
themselves with the statf so that the 
transfer of news can be more rapid 
and convenient. 

The thanks of La Vie Collegienne 
is extended to those persons who 
faithfully helped keep the recent 
class elections from becoming campus 
gossip. It is to be desired that this 
spirit continue throughout the year. 

pearls of 

Most of the freshmen by this time 
have noticed the lack of hazing on 
the campus and have realized that 
there are no rigid requirements de- 
signed to plague them. It must sure- 
ly be apparent to them that the rela- 
tionship between the upperclassmen 
and themselves is one of friendly co- 
operation and brotherhood. The fresh- 
men need not fear mental or physical 
harm from any of the more advanced 
students, and are permitted to lead 
peaceful lives if they so choose. Equal 
rights are not only extended in social 
life, but also granted in the extra 
curricular activities on the campus. 
All the facilities of the institution 
are offered equally to all students 
without reference to class position. 

In return for all this equality, 
which does not exist at all schools, 
the upperclassmen expect only com- 
mon courtesy and respect. Surely a 
senior has the right to expect a fresh- 
man to hold his station, with enough 


The La Vie Collegienne wishes to 
extend to the various business men 
and business houses its sincere appre- 
ciation tor their cooperation in using 
the columns of La Vie for advertis- 
ing purposes. These advertisers play 
a vital role in the publication of this 
paper, and in return for their lint 
spirit La Vie can sincerely recom- 
mend them as worthy of the whole- 
hearted patronage of the student 
body and college. It is only througn 
the cooperation of the student body 
in dispensing their patronage to the 
deserving business establishments in 
a fair manner that the best relation- 
ship between this paper and its ad- 
vertising clients can be maintained. 

In view of the fact that there are 
various business men not only in Ann- 
ville, but also in Lebanon, who deal 
in essentials to the well-being of a 
college student and who refuse to ad- 
vertise in this paper even though they 
already get a large percentage of the 
student patronage, la Vie Collegi- 
enne calls on the student body to 
stand firm and transfer this business 
to some of our deserving clients, in 
asking for this unified support for 
our advertisers, the La Vie believes 
that no measures can be too harsh. 
We strongly urge each and every sub- 
scriber to La Vie to carefully read 
the advertisements appearing in these 
columns and then judge according. 
Before action is taken by the students 
we suggest that they have read at 
least the first two issues of La Vie 
since many of our advertisements ap- 
pear in alternate weeks and in this 
way avoid harming one of our adver- 

school spirit 

Each year we come back to school 
and find our early weeks made pleas- 
ant by many happy experiences. 
Sometimes the pleasantness of these 
times is marred by some disappoint- 
ing experience, and a feeling of de- 
spair and bitter disappointment fills 
us. Such a feeling surely must have 
been found in the hearts of many of 
the students and faculty when they 
witnessed the despairing attempt to 
have a pep meeting last Friday morn- 
ing in chapel. Never has the spirit 
of Lebanon Valley ebbed so low and 
never has there been such an expres- 
sionless, uncooperative, indifferent at- 
titude displayed by a student group 
on this campus. 

Led by a band primed for the occa- 
sion and cheerleaders with pep and 
enthusiasm to spare, the student body 
gave a remarkable demonstration of 
the wrong way to express school spir- 
it and unity. Imagine the feelings of 
the band and the cheerleaders when 
they heard their strongest efforts met 
with weak scattered responses. Ima- 
gine the feelings of the football men

Freshmen Select 
Weiler Cha irman 

On Friday, September 16, the 
Freshman class met and elected the 
following committee to handle its 
affair., until it had a formal elec- 
tion of officer.,: Robert Weiler, 
chairman; Alfred Stevens, and 
Sheldon McWilliams. 

The election was sponsored by 
the Y. M. C. A. and the Men's Sen- 
ate in order to help the Freshmen 
organize for the numeral fight, and 
yet give them more time to con- 
sider candidates for the leadership 
of their class. 

as they witnessed the feeble attempt 
at a student demonstration. With the 
first grid game but a few days away, 
surely spirit should be higher than it 
has so far been demonstrated. Coach 
Jerry Frock has primed his squad for 
this season's opener, and Danny Sei- 
verling has his squad of cheerleaders 
rehearsed and set to go, but the stu- 
dent body is still under an apparent 

Won't you please come out in the 
light, students, and if you don't have 
the spirit, expose yourself to it at 
any rate, for it is contagious? Are 
you ashamed to sing a school song, 
or open your throats to a rousing 
cheer, or is it that you just don't 

Stuff 'n Things 

No doubt your first reaction on 
seeing this column will be, "Good 
night! Is that guy in again?" By way 
of answer you'll have to accept our 
word that he IS here for another year 
with nothing more to say than "Wel- 
come, and hope you'll like us" to the 
freshmen and a "Glad to see you 
back" to the upperclassmen. 
i * * * * 

Now that everyone knows how 
everyone else spent his summer, we 
can settle down to the serious (some 
vulgar persons would advise putting 
a question mark here, but not yours 
truly) business of another school 
year. Judging by the rapidity with 
which various campus affairs are 
getting under way, this settling pro- 
cess is already well advanced. 

* * * * 

Now that you've put up with us this 
far, we're going to revert to conven- 
tionality and impart a word of greet- 
ing and advice to the freshmen, as 
follows: It's always pleasant to wel- 
come a new class to L. V. C, and in 
so doing to recall in some measure 
our own first experiences; hence the 
warmth of our welcome to you, frosh. 
As for the advice, you'll be wise to 
keep your eyes and ears open; and, 
for the most part, speak only when 
spoken to. And be sure you know 
how low a freshman is. 

* * * • * 

Those of us who are inclined to be 
domestic will be interested to know 
that Amy Monteith did her own cook- 
ing for a short period during the sum- 
mer. Rumor has it that a sharp rise 
in the stocks of several canned goods 
companies was an indirect result of 
her experience. 

* * * * 
Possibly you have already heard of 

the sharpshooting prowess exhibited 
last Friday night by Mrs. Carmean at 
the Sunset market outside of Leba- 
non; as a consequence of the incident 
she is now known to her intimates as 
"Calamity Jane." Also quite in the 
running were Mr. Carmean and Mr. 
Freeland, newcomer to the Conserv 
faculty, in spite of constant heckling 
by interested onlookers. The inhabi- 
tants of the Men's Dorm are indebted 
to the party for that bunch of ban- 
anas which was made available for 
popular consumption on Saturday. 

* * * * 

Our congratulations to those who 
arranged and had charge of the 
Freshman Hike the other Friday 

night. We thought it a thoroughly 
enjoyable affair; and after seeing the 
doggies disappear like snow in a sum. j 
mer sun, it became evident to us that ' 
we were not alone in our opinion.

The first gun of the annual inter- 
society campaign will be fired tonight 
when Philo gives its smoker for the 
freshmen. Several noted artists are 
scheduled to appear, among them 
Madame Effie Mae, erstwhile star 
end for Jerry Frock's boys, and EL 
mer Hackman, the Lititz virtuoso who 
has worked up a non-existent coun- 
terpart of "The Lost Chord" for the I 
occasion. Should be good. 

* * * * I 

Tink Silvers, J. Bowker Thomas, 
and D. Snayder Seiverling have re- 
turned from a vacation trip to Can- 
ada, leaving behind them fond mem- 
ories, to say nothing of Seiverling's 
bronchitis. They say Seiverling's 
French is terrible.

Our freshmen friends seem to be 
rather "hot," if we can believe the 
results of the medical exam given 
them during freshman week. It seems 
that several of the boys were running 
abnormally high temperatures — what 
caused the phenomenon we aren't pre- 
pared to say, but something was evi- 
dently up. Watch out, girls! 

Allow us, please, to present an od- 
ious bunch of scallions to the sopho- 
mores on their not-so-fine showing in 
the Numeral Scrap. Not only were 
theier actions indicative of an attitude 
approaching cowardice, but they sue- j 
ceeded in breaking a fairly old and a 
very honorable tradition here at L. V. 
C. For the first timew ithin this 
writer'sk nowledge the sophs backed 
put of the scrap and didn't even both- 
er to show up. 

* * * I 
Lest the courageous few suffer for t 

the sins of the many, let us say that 
President Frank Lennon was support- 
ed by five or six loyal sophs the men- 
tion of whose names would serve only 
to further humiliate those who desert- 

* * * 
Having just settled down to work 

after a bit of excitement (this is be- 
ing written late Tuesday night), we 
hasten to dispel the confusion of 
Mary Louise Clark, North Hall new- 
comer from Linden Hall. After being 
correctly informed on the true state 
of affairs, Miss Clark dazedly crack- 
ed, "Who's going with who around 
here?" Be at rest, Miss Clark; Tink 
and Ellen are still that way. 

* * * \ 

Prize catch of the affair, so we 
think, was Al Stevens, Connecticut 
roomie of Warren Sechrist and Bar- 
ney Bentzel. Poor Al, coming back 
from one transfusion, was so anxious 
to help that he immediately went out 
for another. And Mr. Growe, who, 
clad only in pajamas, got into dif#* 
culty in a Lebanon hospital, was an- 
other of the more unfortunate vic- 

All in all, the affair was quite 
success. We hesitate to discuss the 
matter any further, as there is 8 
probability thatb y the time you, y° u 
and you read this, these incidents 
will haveb een told over and ove* 
again. We do wish, however, to con- 
vey cur congratulations to the pri n ' 
cipaJs for a clever and convincing j * 1 
of acting. • 

* * * 

And so we come to the close of th e 
weekly grind. As the year goes 011 
we shall comment on practically 

thing that comes to mind. Until ne* 4 
time, then, we'll say, "So long!" 

* * * 
Epilogue: To top it all off, the f^J 

alarm has just been set off and can 
be stopped — and we did so want t" 
sleep. Good-night!

With the Dutchmen 

Glimpses of the 1938 edition of the 
Flying Dutchmen eleven seems to 
fciecast a very successful season for 
"Jeiry" Frock and his cohorts. The 
cna p and industry that has been dis- 
played by the entire squad is a desir- 
able asset to the squad and which 
seemed lacking the past few years. 
Competition for starting berths has 
spurred veteran performers to new 
heights that have never before been 
reached by them. Competition is the 
essence of business, and it may be the 
•.park necessary to set the Dutchmen 
otf to booming start. 

The grids chedule that has been ar- 
ranged for the coming season is not 
the hardest to be faced by a Blue & 
Whit* 1 aggregation, but it is the first 
one in recent years that has given the 
squad an even break by carding all 
teams of equal strength. Examination 
of the Williamson National Grid Rat- 
ings reveal that four of L. V.'s oppo- 
nents are rated above her rating at 
65.0. These schools in their order of 
supposed superiority are Franklin & 
Marshall, 73.0; Albright, 72.0; St. 
Joseph, 67.0; Pennsylvania Military 
College, 66. Two opponents are found 
to have a lower rating, namely Mora- 
vian, 55.0, and Hartwick, 44.0. Jun- 
iata and Susquehanna do not appear 
in the ratings. These figures tend 
to show that the schedule is not the 
set up that many criticize it to be. 

All Lebanon Valley football fol- 
lowers remember only too well the ex- 
ploits of the "Corning Express." Al- 
bright's Dick Riffle. Since his grad- 
uation from college Riffle has signed 
with Bert Bell and his Philly Eagles 
in the National Football League. At 
the present time Riffle is third in the 
league in ground-gaining with 114 
yards in 24 attempts for an average 
of 4.7 yards a smash. In this respect 
he bests the highly touted "Whizzer" 
White, of the Pittsburgh Pirates who 
has an average of 3.1. It is interest- 
ing to note the rise of Maestro Bell's 
fledglings this year for which Riffle 
is in no small part responsible. Of 
great interest, too, is the success that 
Leo "Moose" Disend of Albright is 
gaining with Brooklyn Dodgers, and 
the recognition that Johnny Cole of 
last year's St. Joseph's eleven is hav- 
ing heaped upon him with the Philly

the Reading Rams and is apparently 
°n the way to more gridiron acclaim. 

Things down Lancaster way are 
not all too rosy this year compared 
to past years. Coach Alan Holman is 
s tiU out on the limb regarding his 
starting lineup. Captain Sammy 
Boeder, hard plunging backfield ace, 
ls the only positive starter barring in- 
juries, and little Albie Asplin, fleet 
halfback, and Steve Uhrinyak, regular 
tackle last year, are in the probable 
column, with the other berths wide

where "Gloomy" Jerry has apparent-

opener does not look too dismal for 
the Blue & White.

Frock Points Eleven 
Toward Lancaster Win 

On Saturday, Oct. 1, Lebanon Val- 
ley's Flying Dutchmen will start their 
fifth season under leadership of Coach 
Jerry Frock. Led by Captain Bob 
Brown, Lemoyne flash, the Blue and 
White grid stars will face the Frank- 
lin & Marshall Diplomats at William- 
son Field, Lancaster. The Lancaster 
fray will be the twelfth of a series 
that began in 1899 when the Red 
Roses topped L. V. by the margin of 
28 to 0. This year the Lancaster 
squad will be the oldest gridiron rival 
that L. V. C. will face with Susque- 
hanna next, followed by Albright. 
These last two series began in 1900 
and 1902 respectively. 

The Annville eleven that will start 
against Coach Alan Holman's squad 
will be composed of a veteran line 
and backfield. Frock will probably 
start the game with Charley Belmer 
at the center post flanked by Stan 
Bulota and Roy Weidman in the 
guard spots. The veteran Frank Roz- 
man will be a stumbling block for the 
Sammy Roeder and Abbie Asplin at 
tackle while Fred Bosnyak will oc- 
cupy the same slot on the other side 
of the line. This year Bosnyak return- 
ed to school bigger and faster than he 
has ever been and will be a rugged 
man offensively and defensively. The 
end posts will probably be filled by 
Captain Brown and Bernie Grabusky 
who has been converted from a center 
to an end this year. This line will 
average 184 pounds, with the lightest 
man being Weidman at 172 and the 
heaviest Bulota at 188. 

The backfield is still somewhat of 
a problem for Frock. The problem 
is not to find good backs but to team 
the best in one combination. So close 
has the battle for the backfield posi- 
tions been that no one has any as- 
surances as to whom Frock will give 
the nod. Eddie Kress, Minersville 
star, will probably start his fourth 
year as a regular at the quarterback 
post. Sammy Vaughn, chunky Mc- 
Keesport blocker, seems destined to 
take over Walt Fridinger's job at full- 
back while Tony Rozman and his ed- 
ucated toe will be found at one half- 
back spot and Frankie Kuhn at the 
other. Chris Walk and Ed Schillo are 
the most likely backs who may force 
their way into the starting four. 

With reserve material three deep in 
all positions in the backfield and al- 
most as strong in the line spots, 
Frock seems to be heading his most 
promising squad since 1936 toward 
this opener which may hold the key 
to success or failure for the season. 
Against this experienced team, Alan 
Holman, former Ohio State star, will 
put an eleven built around a flashy 
backfield and a spotty untried line. His 
reserve material equals Frock's but 
the starting eleven is slightly shaded 
by the Dutchmen.

College Net Star 
Wins Wide Acclaim 

Umberger Draws 
Attention To Great 
Tournament Play 

During the past summer season the 
career of Lebanon Valley's outstand- 
ing net star, Jacob "Buddie" Umber- 
ber has been noteworthy. The Blue 
and White luminary has climbed 
steadily in the tennis ladder of fame 
and during the summer he boosted his 
rating in no uncertain fashion. 

After completing a very successful 
season last spring as number one man 
on the tennis team, Umberger 
promptly went into action as the top- 
notch man of two nearby tennis 
teams. He led the Palmyra net team 
in the Tri-county league and also led 
the Lebanon Tennis Team, a fast 
stepping outfit which has won two 
league titles in two years of existence. 

While these leagues were in prog- 
ress, Buddie entered many tourna- 
ments in which his success was phe- 
nomenal considering the suddenness 
of his rise. He entered the Fort Hunt- 
er Tournament at Harrisburg and up- 
set eighth-seeded Don Giant in the 

quarter finals. Then he played Eliza- 
bethtown's Warren "Red" Angstadt, 
racqueteer of county and state fame, 
and was defeated only after a terrific 
battle 2-6, 6-2, 6-1 in the semi-finals. 
It was in this match that Umberger 
attained his most prestige, because 
Angstadt was top-seeded in the high- 
ly competitive field at Fort Hunter. 

Buddie, then entered two tourna- 
ments playing every day since the 
tournaments were running at the 
same time. He was seeded eighth in 
a tough field at York which showed 
his prowess at the net game. In this 
tournament he met with some hard 
luck because of the physical handi- 
cap of being "over-tennised" and was 
forced to default in a third round 
match to Elwoood Snyder of Lancas- 
ter. In the Berks County Open tour- 
nament he met with defeat due to his 
physical condition, but put up a bat- 
tle before being submerged. 

Later in the summer Buddie found 
time to win the Lebanon County 
Closed tennis tournament, coming 
through after being seeded second. 
Umberger won the finals of this tour- 
ney from Bill Worrilow, the top-notch 
player and winner of the Lawrence- 
ville School tournament. 

Even after this conquest, Umberger 
entered another tourney, namely the 
Pennsylvania State Clay tournament

Newcomers Press Valley 
Lettermen For Positions 

For the last four weeks Coach Jer- 
ry Frock has been putting a squad of 
32 grid aspirants through vigorous 
practice sessions in preparation for 
an eight game season. Starting his 
fifth year as Blue and White mentor, 
Frock for the first time has a wealth 
of material with veterans back to fill 
all positions and a set of newcomers 
who may replace some of the familiar 
faces in the line-up. 

Aided by "Chief" Metoxen and Gor- 
don Davies, new assistant, Coach 
Frock has been busy putting twelve 
backs and twenty linemen through 
their paces. With sixteen lettermen 
to form the nucleus of the squad, sev- 
eral flashy newcomers round out a 
promising group. During the early 
part of the pre-season grind Frock 
sent the boys through two sessions 
daily, but since the start of classes 
the drills have been cut down to one 
a day. 

The spirit of the squad is much im- 
proved over previous years due to stiff 
competition for starting roles. The 
physical condition of the players is 
exceptional and apparently the team 
will start the season's grind minus 
injuries. Ever since the first few 
weeks of conditioning and fundament- 
als, the squad has been split into a 
specialty group with the individ- 
ual players working on their own 
strong points. 

Eddie Kress, Frankie Lennon, Ed 
Schillo, and Ray Frey have been han- 
dling the punting chores with Schillo 
and Kress pretty evenly matched. In 
the passing department Frankie 
Kuhn, Chris Walk, and Kress appar- 
ently have clinched these chores. Tony 
Rozman, last year's leading full goal 
booter, is again scoring theoretical 
three-pointers while Chris Walk is al- 
so developing into a placement kicker 
of promise. 

In the line Frock has made several 
changes to plug up apparent weak- 
nesses. Coda Sponaugle has been 
shifted from end to guard, a position 
which he formerly played and rugged 
Bernie Grabusky has been switched 
from center to end filling Sponaugle's 
vacated post. 

Gordon Davies Named 
Assistant Grid Mentor 

Gordon Davies, captain and erst- 
while guard of the 1937 football team, 
has again donned a uniform for his 
Alma Mater, but this time in the role 
of a line coach. 

As a player, he gained much rec- 
ognition for his outstanding play at 
the guard post. As a result he was 
named on many All-Opponent elev- 
ens. After graduation he was elected 
to the Philadelphia Inquirer squad 
that tussled with the Philadelphia 
Eagles early this fall in the Temple 
stadium. Now, Davies has returned 
to the campus for the present foot- 
ball season to assist Coach Frock with 
the 1938 Blue and White squad. His 
presence is appreciated by coaches, 
players, and student body. 

In his off-moments, Davies plays 
with the Reading Rams, a semi-pro 
outfit from Reading. They won their 
first game last Wednesday night by 
the score of 3-0. Davies played ap- 
proximately three-quarters of the 
game and gave an excellent account 
of himself while in action.

Umberger was defeated in the first 
round by Mort Ballagh who played in 
the National Finals at Forest Hills.

Carmean Leads Philos 
In European Discussion 

The Philokosmian Literary Society 
reinstituted the custom of holding lit- 
erary meetings last Friday night 
when it met and discussed the pres- 
ent European Situation. This was the 
first in a new series of these discus- 
sions to be conducted every two weeks 
on some appropriate subject, with va- 
rious members of the faculty, and 
prominent off-campus men acting as 
leaders of the discussions. 

Prof. L\ Clark Carmean led the 
discussion, conducting it in an infor- 
mal manner. He opened it by intro- 
ducing the question of the German 
Youth Movement, and the possibility 
of its penetrating into the minds of 
the youth of the United States. The 
next question which he brought out 
was the importance of the Hitler- 
Mussolini agreement. T,he different 
stands taken by the French, British, 
Polish, Russian, and Roumanian gov- 
ernments were then taken into ac- 
count, and the meeting closed by lis- 
tening to the latest news bulletins 
over the radio. 

Named Assistant Coach 

Gordon Davies, captain of the 1937 
edition of the "Flying Dutchmen"

Dean A. H. M. Stonecipher lec- 
tured to the newcomers on Thursday 
morning, his subject being "Campus 
Citizenship." Many valuable hints for 
Freshmen, as well as for the upper- 
classmen that were present, were tak- 
en from this well-delivered address. 
Thursday afternoon Miss Helen Mey- 
ers, librarian, instructed the new stu- 
dents in the use of the library, in or- 
der to better avail themselves of the 
facilities of our Carnegie Library. 

Some very helpful aids to study 
were given to the new students on 
Friday and Saturday mornings by 
Dr. L. G. Bailey in his lecture, "How 
to Study." 

Social Functions 

The Freshmen launched their social 
career at L. V. C. with a fellowship 
program for the men in the Y. M. C. 
A. rooms and for the girls in North 
Hall parlor. These were sponsored by 
the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. cabi- 
nets to enable the new students to be- 
come acquainted with each other. 

Thursday evening the President, 
Faculty, and Wives received the new 
students at a complimentary informal 
dinner in their honor held in the col- 
lege dining hall. A feature of this 
program was' the group singing, led 
by Prof. Rutledge. All who were pres- 
ent entered into the singing whole- 
heartedly. Immediately following the 
dinner, the members of the congrega- 
tion of the college church entertained 
the new students with a reception, 
also in their honor, given in the base- 
ment of the college church. Delicious 
refreshments consisting of ice cream 
and cake were served to all in attend- 

A warm evening and a gorgeous 
sunset made the setting perfect for 
the annual Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. 
A. hike and campfire held on Friday 
evening. The joyous group left North 
Hall at 4:30 P. M., and made its way 
to the picnic ground on the Fink 
property southwest of Annville, As 
soon as the group arrived, games were 
started in which everyone participat- 
ed. However, the appetites of the 
group, sharpened by the hike and the 
smell of the smoke caused the merri- 
ment to be brought to an end, and 

the more serious task of gathering 
sticks and toasting weiners engaged 
in. After the meal college and other 
favorite songs were sung around the 
campfire. The group then returned to 
the campus, led by the chaperones for 
the occasion who were President and 
Mrs. Lynch, Dr. and Mrs. Black, 
Dean and Mrs. Stonecipher, and Dr. 
and Mrs. Reynolds. 

Freshman Reception 

Saturday night saw the climax of 
the L. V. C. Freshmen Week — the 
Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. recep- 
tion to new students. The program 
was opened in the chapel by Ben M. 
Goodman, president of the Y. M. C. 
A., who welcomed the new students 
on behalf of that organization. Mrs. 
P. A. W. Wallace and Dr. Amos R. 
Black greeted the newcomers for the 
advisers of the Christian Associa- 
tions, and Audrie Fox welcomed the 
new students on behalf of the Y. W. 
C. A. Musical selections were given 
by Betty Shillott, Ralph Manwiller, 
and Loy Ebersole, three talented mem- 
bers of the Freshmen class of the con- 
servatory. They were accompanied by 
Mrs. Andrew Bender and Miss Doro- 
thy Yeakel. Following this program 
in the chapel, the "big brothers" and 
"big sisters" introduced their "little 
brothers and sisters" to the faculty 
in the receiving line in the alumni 
gymnasium. Prof, and Mrs. D. Clark 
Carmean then led the party in a 
grand march which ended with ev- 
eryone having a partner of his own. 
After a few delightful games, Presi- 
dent and Mrs. Lynch were the leaders 
in the game, "Follow the Leader," 
and, "strange as it may seem," this 
game ended in Philo Hall where re- 
freshments were served. They con- 
sisted of a vegetable-gelatin salad on 
shredded lettuce, pickles, olives, cakes 
and punch. This style of refresh- 
ments was an innovation on the cam- 
pus. Dancing in the gymnasium to the 
music of the "nickelodian" until 11:30 
P. M., concluded the program. Ac- 
cording to the members of the faculty 
present, this reception was one of the 
best ever held at L. V. C. 

Sunday evening the vesper service 
conducted by the "Y" cabinets in the 
chapel, was in charge of Carl Ehr- 
hart and Martha Jane Koontz. The 
theme of the service was "Loyalty" 
and was carried out by illustrations 
of various types of loyalty from the 
lives of great men and women of to- 
day. Following this service Rev. Wilt 
preached a special sermon in the col- 
lege church to both new and old stu- 
dents with the title, "The Secret of 
Life and Success." 

Monday morning and afternoon 
Freshmen registered, thus ending the 
eighth Freshmen Week at Lebanon

flame of hatred, fanned to terrific 
heights in the week previous, explod- 
ed in a terrible crime. It was Damon 
"Tank" Silvers, whose nerves, strain- 
ed to the breaking point by the events 
leading up to his threatened expulsion 
from school, gave way in a frenzy of 
madness, and who pulled the trigger 
of the death-weapon. Dean Aungst, 
second focal point in the eternal love 
triangle which included Silvers' erst- 
while lady-friend, Ellen Ruppersbur- 
ger, fell a victim to the slayer's bul- 
lets. Silvers apparently couldn't take 
it, and Aungst didn't live to tell the 
tale. The shooting was precipitated 
by a fight between the two principals 
earlier in the evening and a summons 
to appear before the Men's Senate to 
answer charges involving several ma- 
jor offenses. 

The crime was committed at ten 
minutes of ten p. m. after Silvers, 
breath reeking of fire-water and 
strong drink, and scarcely able to 
chart a straight course, had searched 
for his intended victim throughout 
the dorm without success. Although 
put to bed by friends, the maddened 
slayer escaped, and on meeting 
Aungst on the first-floor landing drew 
a gun and poured a stream of lead 
into his body at close range. Aungst 
staggered as far as the corner of the 
archway in the center of the dorm 
and there collapsed from loss of blood 
while the killer beat his hasty re- 
peat into the blackness of the night. 

By this time the first few students 
in the dorm who were aroused from 
their studies by the fusilade of shots 
had arrived on the scene and carried 
the dying man into the nearest room. 
When water failed to arouse him from 
his state of coma, he was hastily put 
into a waiting car and transferred to 
Lebanon Hospital, where he was in 
a very critical condition and losing 
blood in a steady stream. 

Upperclassmen took stock of the en- 
suing bedlam and sent ready, willing, 
and able Frosh for all the available 
doctors in Annville, ministers, police 
and everybody who might be of as- 
sistance, for it was not a time to en- 
quire or debate, but a demand for ac- 
tion. The class of 1942 responded 
nobly, and soon all of them were out 
on errands of mercy. 

It was a particularly trying situa- 
tion when Miss Ruppersburger, about 
"whom the storm centered, was told 
°f the dastardly deed and came in a 
breathless mad dash across from 
North Hall and sobbing while she 
wrung her hands and tore her hair 
demanded to be allowed to see 
Aungst. She fainted cold when re- 
fused admittance to the death-room, 
but recovered sufficiently to be led, 
still crying and pleading, back to the 
safety f her own room. The an- 
nouncement of the crime brought sim- 
nar experiences of horror and high 
emotional tension in the other girl's 
dorms. Everywhere were scenes of 
confusion, orders, countermanded or- 
ders, weeping and wailing. 

While a large crowd, steadily in- 
casing in number, gathered in and 
ab out the archway of the dorm, it was 
announced that Aungst was still liv- 
ing but desperately in need of blood, 
because of its loss from the wound 
m his chest from the bullet which had 
gashed through, leaving a gaping hole 
ltt his shirt. Altruistic Frosh were 
quickly rounded up and dispatched to 
Lebanon, Hershey, and Harrisburg in 
search of the ubiquitous Mr. Aungst, 

ho didn't seem to stay in one place 
° n g enough for the transfusion of

At this juncture President Clyde A. 
Lynch appeared on the scene of the 
crime and in a fit of righteous rage 
hotly condemned the Men's Senate for 
its failure to break up the quarrel, the 
Y. M. C. A. and the Life Work Re- 
cruits for their laxness in doing their 
Christian duty, and the failure of the 
"he-man" football players to live up 
to their possibilities of stopping the 
affair. He closed with a stinging 
"Christian institution, BAH!!" and 
ordered the Senate dissolved on the 
spot; and thus the men's student gov- 
erning body of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege , after a long and honorable re- 
cord, passed from the pages of his- 
tory. All present winced at the sting- 
ing lashes of the President in this 
display of executive thunder. 

With the news that the tranfusion 
efforts, noble as they were, had fail- 
ed and that Aungst had passed to the 
great beyond, collection of money for 
flowers was started. The charter sub- 
scribers in North Hall included fresh- 
men Mildred Cross, Ruth Heminway, 
Betty Shillot, Dorian Loser, Juliet 
Gochnauer and Margaret Cox, each of 
whom pledged fifty cents toward the 
.purchase of posies. Frosh served 
elsewhere as nickel-gatherers and 
dime-gleaners, however, with meagre 

With all this taken care of, with 
the one hundred per cent cooperation 
of the class of '42, and the valuable 
directional aid of upper classmen, it 
is the general feeling that the cur- 
rent production was one of the best 
murders yet. Only a few minor de- 
tails nearly slipped up, but fortunate- 
ly Mr. Aungst got rid of the bottle 
containing his blood soon enough, and 
there was nothing to mar the solem- 
nity of the occasion.

Return of Professors 

Delayed by Illness 

Two of our professors have been 
unable to meet their classes since the 
opening of the fall term due to illness. 
Dr. Eugene Stevenson has been sick 
for several months, and at present is 
recuperating from an unusual spinal 
operation at Union Memorial Hospit- 
al, Baltimore, Maryland. 

Dr. Paul Wagner, of the Depart- 
ment of Mathematics, has been ill at 
his home on College Avenue, Ann- 
ville, for several weeks. Dr. Wagner's 
rendition is serious, and no time has 
been set for his return. 

A Freshman Speaks 

By Ruth Long 
The die is cast. We are now what 
is commonly known as "Frosh" — so 
they tell us. We really wouldn't 
know. Our conception of the title 
would be "Fresh." 

We came to learn (?), we thought 
we knew a lot already, but do we still 
think so ? No. We are gradually real- 
izing what little, insignificant, ignor- 
ant humans we are. Well, didn't you 
after you took all the tests which 
we've stared at (with amazement) the 
first week of college? 

We've been treated with the great- 
est consideration during "Freshmen 
Week." All the dinners, receptions,, 
and dances flatter us immensely. We 
wonder how long it will last. Oh yes! 
we mustn't forget the lectures. We 
don't dare think how long they will 

We've had quite a time of it duck- 
ing through the rain, grabbing our 
umbrellas, or forgetting them, don- 
ning raincoats, changing to dry stock- 
ings and shoes, evading water pud- 
dles and numerous other small items. 
But don't misunderstand us. We love 

the rain. It makes things grow. 

I said we had a marvelous time dur- 
ing "Freshmen Week." We had a 
marvelous time also the second week 
trying to find someone who had a 
book we wanted, trying to arrange our 
schedule so as to have no conflicts, 
remembering to open doors for upper- 
classmen instead of hurrying out of 
the rain and making sure no one but 
Freshmen were behind us. We are try- 
ing not to forget that there are cer- 
tain members of certain organizations 
floating around the campus with 
watchful eyes. It is so easy to for- 
get to wear headgear and so difficult 
to control our mouthpieces at times. 
Sometimes we wonder if college is all 
that it's cracked up to be. But don't 
get us wrong — we love it. 

We have been here for only a short 
while, but already we have been con- 
scious of the enthusiasm and spirit 
for L. V. C. possessed by the upper- 
classmen. At first we wondered what 
it was all about and why. We know 
now — we have it too. 

College Starts 
Accident Policy 

New Insurance Provides 
Low Cost Protection 

A new plan of medical reimburse- 
ment provided by the Indemnity In- 
surance Company of North America 
has been approved by Lebanon Valley 
College for its students this year. 
The plan has been in operation with 
gratifying results for the past three 
years in a number of the leading 
schools and colleges of the country. 
It guarantees to reimburse parents 
for any medical expense incurred from 
an accident in which a student is in- 
jured during the college year. Hos- 
pital bills, X-rays, nurses', physicians' 
and surgeons' fees, laboratory costs, 
medicines, and any other medical 
costs arising as the result of an ac- 
cident are included in the plan. The 
reimbursement will be made up to the 
amount of $250.00 for EACH acci- 

In the broad scope of the plan 
there are no limitations or restric- 
tions. The accidents covered include 
sports; they may be sustained at home 
as well as at college, while traveling 
between college and home, or wher- 
ever the student may be. The college 
office is offering this medical reim- 
bursement plan for accidents to all 
students of the college at a low cost 
insuring coverage from the opening 
day of college, or from the day the 
fee has been paid, until the final 
day of the college year. 

A large percentage of the student 
body have already taken advantage of 
the offer. 

Plan Ticket Campaign 
For Community Concert 

The time has come, Lebanon Valley 
concert-goers, for you to make ar- 
rangements for your season ticket to 
the fourth annual series of Commu- 
nity Concerts. 

During the past years this plan, 
whereby all have an opportunity to 
hear the very best artists at rates so 
reasonable that the most economical 
can afford to attend, has grown in 
favor — grown to such an extent that 
this year's campaign results off-cam- 
pus exceed last year's by 100 new 
memberships. Of course this increase 
has enabled the committee to plan 
even more outstanding programs. 

At the local concerts in Lebanon 
you will enjoy an evening with Bruna 
Castagna, Metropolitan Opera singer 
and very popular radio artist, con- 
ceded to be the greatest living con- 
tralto. Another program will feature 
Albert Spalding, the greatest of all 
American violinists and classed with 
the five greatest of the world! And, 
finally, especially for those who have 
applauded the fine piano teams of oth- 
er years, Community Concerts present 
Vronsky and Babin in several groups 
of piano duos. 

But this is not all. The same ticket 
permits you to attend the Lancaster 
concerts, which will consist of a pro- 
gram by the Rochester Symphony or- 
chestra conducted by the increasingly 
popular Jose Iturbi; French pianist, 
Amele Baune, and Elen Dosia, so- 
prano, with Andre Burdino, tenor, in 
two-part selections. 

Because the York memberships 
have increased very greatly, their as- 
sociation has been forced to refuse ad- 
mittance to guests at any of their 
concerts for this season. 

Remember — the campaign lasts one 
week only, and if you are lucky 
enough to be a student, you will need 
only two dollars to join. The rest of 
you are lucky also, for your tickets 
will cost the small sum of five dol- 



Daylight On Campus 

By Aurora 

This column is intended to shed 
some illumination upon the campus 
life of the men day-students, although 
the gentle or savage readers will be 
permitted from time to time to join 
the ladies in their more luxurious 
South Hall sanctum sanctorum — pro- 
vided that the writer can secure the 
cooperation of an enterprising Mati 
Hari. Aurora will attempt to avoid 
a readily suggestable corruption of 
his appellation, Aurora Bore-all-of-us. 

Maladies resulting from chronic 
sandwichitis conditions faced possible 
cure last week when the day-students 
were tapped to discover the currents 
of opinion regarding a cooperatively- 
operated lunch-room. Disciples of Dr. 
Stokes smelled socialism in the air, 
but later decided that it was only the 
odor of hot soup. After a few Busi- 
ness Adders had shown how impossi- 
ble the idea was, they voted with the 
more optimistic to give the plan their 

A red-headed driver of a Ford 
coupe wonders whether the coopera- 
tive-eatery would meet with universal 
approval. Pointing out that the in- 
terests of all concerned should be re- 
membered, he asserts that snitchers 
of lunches from our unlockable lock- 
ers would find the arrangement more 
expensive in the long run. Aurora, 
several times a vcitim of the com- 
munist-lunch trick, disagrees with 
Red that lunch snitchers deserve mer- 
cy in any form. 

Agitation for a governing body in- 
dependent of the Men's Senate has 
begun. Without feeling the least 
doubtful that almost any government 
would be superior to the present an- 
archistic state of affairs in the Men's 
day-student room, we noticed that a 
vociferous agitator was one of the 
first violators of an existing prohi- 
bition. But it was funny to see that

Day-student ranks have been men- 
aced by desertion to the dorm. Last 
year we lost Toughy Lehman. Now 
we mourn the departure of Johnnie 
Moyer and Charlie Brown (former 
horse-play artist whose pranks are 
gone but not forgotten). Incidentally, 
the trio have decided to share a com- 
mon abode. 

Dr. Lynch's opening-day announce- 
ment that a conscientious attempt is 
being made to alleviate the suffering 
of the not-always-too-patient day-men 
in what was not so long ago called 
the Black Hole of Calcutta, by fur- 
nishing adequate quarters, received 
appreciative applause. References to 
discomforts that may creep into this 
column are not to be construed as re- 
bukes upon the Administration so 
long as it maintains this understand- 
ing attitude; such references merely 
recognize actual reality. 

Flashes: During the mad annual 
rush for used text-books, a progres- 
sive suggested that an agency could 
be created on campus for saner redis- 
tribution of these books. Our bulletin 
boards might at least not then be 
plastered with notices advertising as 
wanted and for sale the identical 
items. . . . The brand of cigarettes 
most popular in the men's day-stu- 
dent room is still the Other Fellow's. 
Aurora commends this generous spir- 
it. It is never difficult to find another 
man who has his own particular pre- 
ferences for the products advertised 
in La Vie. . . . Sam Rutter, judging 
from a conversation overheard, has 
been taking an interest in genetics. 
. . . Noon-time arguments have been 
few so far this year. Even the Euro- 
pean crisis brought few disputes, 
since there was generally a tendency 
to accept the ready-made opinions in 
a favorite Philadelphia newspaper. . . 
We notice that a number of Fresh- 
men are getting an early start in 
their work for the Bachelor of Pin- 

Class Elections Reveal 
Bitter Political Lines 

At a meeting held Monday, Sep- 
tember 26, the senior class elected the 
following officers for the first sem- 
ester of the coming year: John Moy- 
er, president; George Yocum, vice 
president; Amy Monteith, secretary; 
and Robert P. Tschop, treasurer. 

As was true of the elections held 
on the campus last year, this was a 
very hctly contested one. The voting 
was close for each office, a total of 
40 votes being ca:_t. 

In the Junior Class meeting held 
at the same time William Bender was 
elected president for the coming sem- 
ester. Herbert Miller was the suc- 
cessful candidate for vice president, 
while Bernice Witmer was named 
secretary and John Moller, treasurer. 

Biologists Convene 
In Special Meeting 

At a special meeting of the Biology 
Club Monday plans were discussed for 
the coming semester. The meetings 
will be held once a month on the first 
Thursday which makes the first offi- 
cial meeting Thursday, October 6, at 
7:30 o'clock. The sessions this year 
will be of a varied nature including 
moving pictures, reports by members 
of the club, and outside speakers. 

The club is one of the departmental 
organizations which is designed to 
give students a chance for expression 
along the line of their particular in- 
terest. Various topics of the day, such 
as socialized medicine, will be dis- 
cussed and opinions aired in a free 
for all. The dues for the year are 
one dollar, half of which must be 
paid before the first meeting. New 
members will be invited to join so 
that they may take advantage of the 
first meeting. 

Philo Makes Pictorial 
Presentation to School 

Last week the Philokosmian Liter- 
ary Society presented to the college 
two group pictures dating back to 
1868 and containing the pictures of 
two of the early presidents of Leba- 
non Valley College and a number of 
early professors. The pictures were 
uncovered in Philo Hall a short time 
after the start of school and present- 
ed President Clyde A. Lynch by Ray- 
mond Smith, president of Philo, for 
safe preservation. When discovered, 
the dusty portraits were beginning to 
show signs of deterioration. The larger 
of the two was a pictorial record 
of the delegates who attended the 
East Pennsylvania Conference of 
United Brethren in Christ at York 
in 1868, while the smaller is also re- 
lated to some church affairs at the 
same date as identified by the men 
who appear on both pictures. 

Rev. Thomas Rees Vickory, Ph. D. 
who served the institution from 1866 
to 1881 and Lucian H. Hammond, A. 
M ., who was head of the college from 
i873 to 1876 were the early presidents 
who appeared on the pictures. 

Recruit Addressed 

By Mission Head 

A new year was inaugurated by the 
Life Work Recruits last Tuesday ev- 
ening when they met in Philo Hall. 
A splendid program was arranged 
centering around the theme of Friend- 

The worship service was under the 
direction of Audrie Fox. During the 
course of the program the string trio 
composed of Dorothy Zeiters, Dorothy 
Yeakel, and John Zettlemoyer, pre- 
sented a beautiful number. In addi- 
tion Ralph Manwiller inspired the 
members and visitors with a baritone 

The main and inspirational speaker 
of the evening was Dr. S. G. Ziegler, 
General Secretary of Foreign Mis- 
sions of the United Brethren Church. 
Dr. Zeigler made mention in his talk 
of the Friendship Project that Leba- 
non Valley and the remaining U. B. 
colleges are engaged with in Africa. 
This is a fine way for us to show our 
friendship to others. Also he empha- 
sized the importance of being follow- 
ers of Christ especially during this 
time in the world's history. The meet- 

College Band Plans 
To Attend Grid Game 

This year the L. V. C. Band will at- 
tend all or at least most all of the 
football game, both home and away. 
Through the help of the administra- 
tion, the band has secured sufficient 
funds to defray the expenses of the 
various trips, and if the necessary ar- 
rangements can be made among the 
band members themselves, the organ- 
ization will appear at every game. 

There are approximately forty mem- 
bers in the band, and they have all 
been rehearsing for the past week in 
order to smooth over some of the 
rough' Lpots caused by the graduation 
of some of the members last year. The 
drum major of the band who served 
in that same capacity for the Leba- 
non High School the past several 
years has already demonstrated his 
prowess in this field to the students 
of L. V. C. 

ing was closed with prayer and the 
benediction was pronounced by Mr.

tative of the World Friendship Proj- 
ect in Afri.a 

Y-Cabinet Outlines 
Future Activities 

The Y. M. C. A. cabinet met last 
Monday evening in a lengthy but 
profitable meeting. It was decided to 
hold Dad's Day earlier than usual 
this year. The purpose of this was 
to enable the fathers to attend one 
of our home football games. The cabi- 
net is planning to concentrate on an 
outstanding program for the evening 
meal. A delightful surprise is being 
planned for the dads as well as the 
sons. This Dad's Day is not meant to 
conflict with the regular dance sched- 
uled by the "L" Club. The cabinet 
expressed its hope that with the aid 
of the "L" Club both affairs can be 
the more profitable. 

This coming year the Y will be 
stocked with the following magazines 
and newspapers: Life, Colliers, News- 
week, American, Pathfinder, the 
Philadelphia Inquirer, New York 
Times, and the Harrisburg Evening 

Last year very little was done in 
the form of the Sunday Evening Ves- 
pers. This year plans are being made 
to conduct weekly services which the 
cabinet hopes will be of interest to 
all. There will be different leaders 
to direct the discussions. Various ap- 
propriate topics will be selected of in- 
terest on our campus. 

Arrangements are being made to 
have N Y A representatives on duty 
in the Y Room. Their task will be to 
distribute the game materials and re- 
ceive them from those who will wish 
to use them.

No. 6 

Senate Accepts 
]\ew Inter-Class 
Athletic League 

Governing Body Stars 
program For Students 

At a recent meeting of the Men's 
Senate, it was decided to accept and 
put into effect the tentative intra- 
mural athletic program that had been 
proposed jointly by Roy Weidman, 
president of the Men's Senate, and 
Howard Baier, editor of La Vie Col- 
legienne. The new enlarged plan is 
to take the place of the rather slip- 
shod system that now exists. 

The proposal was accepted and ap- 
proved with the idea in mind that it 
would form a nucleus for a well- 
rounded program to be developed la- 
ter. It consists of various class 
leagues in the different sports with 
a point system to determine the win- 
ner at the end of the year. The high- 
est scorer in the composite league 
standings will be awarded a silver 
loving cup which will be a competitive 
award and must be won three years 
consecutively before retirement. The 
cup is to be known as the Men's Sen- 
ate - La Vie Trophy. 

Instead of the usual contests in 
basketball only, there will be several 
individual leagues; namely, touch 
football league, table tennis league, 
handball league, volley ball league, 
soft ball league, basketball league, 
and tennis league, with a possible 
soccer league. According to the plan 
as accepted, the touch football league 
started last Saturday morning with 
each class participating in one of the 
two contests. The league is to run 
for three weeks with all contests held 
on Saturday mornings. This would 
result in each class team meeting its 
three rivals. Interest in the league is 
to determine whether it is to be en- 
larged to a six or nine game schedule. 

Following the touch football and 
even running at the same time will 
be the table tennis league. Here all 
events will be played in the Y-room. 
The membership of each team and 
schedule of matches has not yet been 
definitely decided on. The tentative

Delphian Society 
Discusses Activities 

Delphian Literary Society met on 
Monday evening in the society hall 
to discuss suggestions for future 
events and to complete plans for the 
annual hike and the joint session with 
Kalo. The following committees were 
appointed for the latter affair: Pro- 
gram — Ruth Rohrer ; refreshments — 
Margaret Druck, Nellie Morrison, 
Myrtle Leff ; decorations — Josephine 
Ernst, Louise DeHuff, Dorothea Kroll. 

Various matters were brought up 
before the society and decided upon. 
The consent of the members was re- 
ceived to allow the day student girls 
to use Delphian Hall at various times 
during the day. The W. A. A. has set 
up its ping pong table in the society 
hall again this year and it will be 
available to any girls wishing to play. 
Permission was granted to the Y. W. 
C. A. to hold the annual Recognition 
Service in Delphian Hall. Recognition 
was also given to Miss Agnes Mor-

"Tovarich" Announced 
As Wig & Buckle Play 

Comedy Picked By Actors 
For November Production 

The Wig and Buckle Dramatics 
Club held its second meeting of the 
year on Tuesday evening, October 4, 
in Room 16 of the Ad Building, at 
which time the club voted to present 
"Tovarich," a three-act comedy by 
Jacques Deval, as its annual Novem- 
ber play. 

The selection was made unanimous- 
ly on the basis of size of cast, appeal 
to the public, and general worth. Af- 
ter brief consideration the club re- 
jected "The Silver Cord," by Sidney 
Howard, and, on the enthusiastic re- 
commendation of Dr. George G . 
Strubl and several members of the 
Executive Committee of the club, de- 
cided on Deval's work. 

"Tovarich" was a smash hit on 
Broadway a few seasons ago in the 
form of Robert Sherwood's trans- 
lation from the original French. It 
concerns itself with an exiled Russian 
Grand Duke and his Grand Duchess, 
who are living in poverty in Paris 
despite the fact that the Grand Duke 
has to his credit in a Paris bank an

Try Outs Scheduled 
Jb or Staff Vacancies 

On Thursday, October 13, La Vie 
Collegienne will hold try-outs for 
positions on the reportorial staff. 
They will be held in Room 5 of the 
Administration Building at 1:00 
o'clock. The purpose of these try-outs 
is to find talent in the new freshman 
class and among the new students so 
all who have a journalistic bent are 
urged to attend this meeting. It is 
necessary to replace graduated mem- 
bers of the staff with incoming fresh- 
men in order to maintain a well bal- 
anced staff with the greatest working 
efficiency. The positions are not lim- 
ited as to number or as to whether 
they shall be filled by a Frosh girl or 
boy. All students who are interested 
in this work will get in touch with 
the editor of La Vie before the time 
of the meeting. 

Delphian Leader 


. . . who had charge of the arrange- 
ments for the annual Delphian Hike. 

Delphians Are Hosts 
At Freshmen Hike 

The annual fall hike of Delta 
Lambda Sigma Literary Society was 
held yesterday evening at 5:30. The 
members and new students left South 
Hall steps at the appointed time and 
wended their way to the banks of the 
Quittie for a program of fellowship 
and fun. An opening greeting was 
extended to the group by the presi- 
dent, Mildred Haas, and by an alumna 
member and first president of Del- 
phian, Miss Stella Huges of Annville. 

After participating in various ice- 
breakers and games under the direc- 
tion of Kathryn Zwally, Irene Seiders, 
and Ferne Poet, the girls assuaged 
their ravenous appetites with refresh- 
ments which have become a tradition 
with the society. 

A perfect ending to a perfect even- 
ing was the beautiful and impressive 
ceremonial performed by several of 
the old members. The girls sang 
songs, formed a friendship circle, and 
one by one passed through the Delta 
triangle, receiving as they did so a 
small favor and a large apple. 

The chaperones were Mrs. S. H. 
(Continued on Page 2) 

Frosh Treated by Kalos at Smoker 

Franklin Grover Zerbe, Kalo presi- 
dent, estimated in an interview that 
about fifty Frosh and new students 
were among those who attended the 
annual Kalo smoker which was held 
last night in Kalo Hall. 

The marimba selections of Charles 
Brown, with which the program start- 
ed, were so well received that en- 
cores were made necessary. Mr. 
Brown is the only swing xylophonist 
on the campus. 

He was followed by the Kalo Male 
Quartet, whose special arrangements 
of several popular and semi-classical 
numbers also met with approval. Then 
came Phil Lester, the trombone man. 
As usual his performance was re- 
markable for the ease with which he 
achieved perfect tone throughout his 
numbers, although tone mastery is 
one of the most difficult accomplish- 
ments a trombonist can have. 

After the musical numbers were 
completed, President Zerbe announced 

a brief dramatic sketch entitled, 
"Snow-White and the Seven Republi- 
cans," or "How to Shoot Craps," of 
which the cast was as follows: Miss 
Dastardly Perkins, Dean Aungst; 
John L. Lewis, Harlan Kinney; Mrs. 
Snow-White Roosevelt, Clarence Leh- 
man; Prince Charming Roosevelt, 
Lloyd Beamesderf er ; Magic Mirror, 
George Munday. In spite of the fact 
that several of the characters went 
up with the curtain and practically 
stayed that way till it came down, the 
telling satire of the skit and the dex- 
terity of Dean Aungst. Lloyd Beames- 
derfer, and Harlan Kinney, all of 
them actors of considerable local re- 
putation, kept the audience in stitch- 
es for the duration of the perfoim- 

After the play the audience was re- 
vived with cider and sandwiches, both 
of which items appeared in such boun- 
teous profusion that they were 
averred the hit of the evening. 

Editor-In- Chief 
Makes Autumn 
Quittie Report 

Ehrhart Announces Theme 
Of Annual Publication 

The main work on the 1940 Quitta- 
pahilla is underway. Although the 
dummy for the book was made and 
general plans were drawn up last 
spring, most of the work on the year- 
book remains to be done this school 
year. The printing contract was 
drawn up and signed with J. Horace 
McFarland Co., of Harrisburg, print- 
er of the last several Quittaphillas. 
This company thus joins Zamsky 
Studios of Philadelphia and the Can- 
ton Engraving and Electrotype Co. of 
Canton, Ohio, in the technical pro- 
duction of the book. 

Th e theme of the year-book, al- 
though not elaborate, will be based on 
the Quittapahilla Creek, from which 
the book receives its name. This 
theme will be worked out on the main 
division pages, as well as by other 
means. Along with this emphasis on 
the Quittapahilla Creek attention will 
be centered on the L of Lebanon 
Valley, the former to be used perhaps 
on the cover of the book as well as 
throughout. As far as cover designs 
are concerned, one particular type of 
cover is under deep consideration, a 
type entirely new to Lebanon Valley 

In general content the style of the 
last few year-books will be followed, 
with sitmilar division and pictures 
being used. However, the arrange- 
ment will be different and more at- 
tention will be paid to sub-division of 
activities and organizations. The fin- 
ished book will contain about 176 
pages and will be printed in two 
colors, probably blue and black. 

Plans are now being laid for the 
main photography activity. The group 
pictures of organizations, clubs, and 
classes will be taken as soon as all 
are organized and functioning for the 
present school year. However, the in- 
dividual pictures of the juniors and

6 poor 


The sportsmanship demonstrated 
by the Franklin and Marshall stu- 
dents at half time during the Frank- 
lin and Marshall and Lebanon Valley 
football game was probably the worst 
that has been witnessed by members 
of this school for many a day. The 
incident to which reference is being 
made is the feudal serf-lord presen- 
tation that marked the intermission 
period. While the Lebanon Valley 
band was on the field drilling and 
playing, the strong-arm upperclass- 
men from the Lancaster school 
marched their helpless freshmen 
across the field to a position in front 
of the Lebanon Valley rooters and 
proceeded to force them to give a 
rather piteous musical program. This 
commotion, accompanied by the wild 
waving of dinks, distracted all atten- 
tion from the visiting band; and then 
later these poor serf-like frosh were 
required to snake dance about the L. 
V. aggregations. On the whole the 
action was definitely in bad taste and 
bad impression on many of the L. V. 
uncalled for and doubtless has left a 

reversal of form 

The spirit demonstrated in chapel 
last Friday morning and again last 
Friday night at the Quittie rally 
seems to indicate that the L. V. stu- 
dent body has finally found itself. In 
contrast with the pep meeting of the 
previous week, the rallies on Friday 
were welcomed by every loyal Blue 
and White rooter. The manner in 
which the students conducted them- 
selves here at Annville and at Lan- 
caster was commendable indeed. The 
response given the cheerleaders at the 
game was a new feature at L. V. grid- 
iron battles. 

To Daniel Seiverling and his seven 
cohorts La Vie extends the olive 
branch. The remarkable change that 
they had brought about in the stu- 
dents, was indeed an outstanding feat. 
So well did these leaders carry out 
their jobs at the Franklin and Marsh- 
all game that they received a word 
of praise from the radio announcers 
for having displayed the most sports- 
manship on the field. The sudden re- 
vival of spirit and enthusiasm of the 
entire student body is due to the hard 
work on the part of the cheerleaders 
to integrate the student activities of 
this sort. 

Similar words of praise rightfully 
belong to the band and its drum ma- 

jor. Despite adverse conditions, these 
musicians performed in truly merit- 
able style. Much of the new life of 
the band is due to the addition of a 
drum major who could really do 
things. This year the band looks a 
hundred per cent improved. The pres- 
ence of the band at the football games 
also adds to the spirit of the rooters. 

$ contents noted 

Appearing in Vox Populi this week 
is a letter presumably written by a 
day student who deplores the white- 
wash that is handed the day students 
by the La Vie Collegienne. If one 
carefully reads the letter, he will find 
that the writer criticizes the first is- 
sue of La Vie because it lacks any 
mention of day-students in the gossip 
column, because day students are not 
played up enough in write-ups such 
as the class elections. These are two 
main features of the letter and are 
surrounded by the general ill-feeling 
that day students are mis-treated. 

By way of answering this expose 
of editorial or managerial policy, the 
editor can only recommend to the 
writer the disciplinary methods of 
Athens and Sparta to build up his 
courage so that upon writing another 
such letter he will have fortitude to 
sign his name thus making some 
claim to the article. The only reason 
that the traditional policy that deals 
with such letters was shelved in this 
case is not to be accused of faking 
the letter and also to present the facts 
of the case. Hereafter all such arti- 
cles must be signed before they will 
be published. 

Aside from the cowardice of the 
author, the letter also shows this vil- 
lian to be a rather poor observer. Re- 
garding the gossip column, the editor 
takes pleasure in directing the writ- 
er's attention to page six, column one 
to the column headed, Daylight on the 
Campus, by Aurora. If the person in 
question is able to read and cares to 
take the time to do so, he will find 
that this article is concerned entirely 
with cummuters' problems and hard- 
ships. In case our brave critic is of 
the female species, she will note that 
Aurora is seeking an aide in the form 
of a Mati Hari in the women's day 
student room. 

Going still deeper into the paper, 
this representative of the down-trod- 
den will find on page three, column 
three an entire article given over to 
the exploitation of the tennis skill of 
a day student. While the question of 
the class elections can be solved by 
noting that there are an equal num- 
ber of dormitory and day students 
named to officers and that there was 
no distinction made in the treatment 
of these persons. 

These remarks are not aimed at 
the entire commuting groups, but 
rather at this self-chosen Moses who 
is apparently a poor example of the 
fine type of individauls that compose 
this group. To this bewildered stum- 
ble-block no deserved consideration 
can be given and only advice to see 
an oculist in the near future. 


Without criticizing any individuals 
on the campus under whose jurisdic- 
tion the direction of an intra-mural 
athletic program for the men, La Vie 
deplores the fact that any satisfac- 
tory system is in use today on the 
campus. Since the adequate athletic 
program for the girls has long proved 
successful, it was evident that the 
only way for the men students to 
secure any athletic program was to 
act themselves. For this reason the 
Men's Senate and La Vie have coop- 
erated in outlining such a schedule of 

Vox Populi ] 

To the editor 

At the outset of another school year 
we once again are reminded of the 
useless, even ridiculous, gap between 
the residents of the dormitories and 
the commuting patrons of L. V. This 
has already been accentuated in the 
first issue of La Vie. First of all we 
missed, as per usual, any reference to 
the commuters in the gossip column, 
a column of interest in any school pa- 
per. Since the discontinuation of the 
Day Students' column last year it is 
more than likely that once again a 
large percentage of L. V. goers will 
again be snubbed. Then, too, we 
couldn't help noticing the diminutive 
position given to the result of the 
Senior and Junior class elections, in 
which day students occupied promi- 
nent roles. In fact, we were obliged 
to look twice to even find the results. 
Since the actions of the college are 
of mutual interest to all, we would, 
in the future, like to see the day stu- 
dents given at least an even break.

Women Day Students 

The women day students met in 
the Day Students' Room on Mon- 
day at 1 o'clock to organize. It was 
decided to dispense with needless 
officials this year, and to elect only 
a president to take care of neces- 
sary business. Dorothy Wentling, 
of Palmyra, was chosen president.

activities as to care for this urgent 

The plan itself is far-reaching and 
is expected to reach all types of indi- 
viduals on the campus. It is urgent 
however, that all the men students 
actively support the project. The suc- 
cess of this proposal rests upon each 
individual that it reaches and effects. 
So why not support your student gov- 
erning body in its attempt to remedy 
existing evils on the campus by sup- 
porting the new proposed intra-mural 
athletic program. 


By Proboscis 
Hwya, gang! Again we inflict our- 
selves upon you; so prepare yourseli 
to be long-suffering — here it comes! 

* # * 

It has come to our ears that the oc- 
cupants of Room 209 in the Men's 
Dorm are up to an old but effective 
trick. Of course, the field glasses 
they're using are only four power; 
but then it's not far to North Hall. 
Who are they? — any upperclassman 

should know. 

* * * 

We have long been expecting a 
breakdown in the morale of our min- 
isterial corps, and it seems to have 
arrived. The worst feature of the af- 
fair is that once again a woman is 
the cause of it all. Of course, we 
might have known that something of 
the sort would eventually befall; but 
imagine, if you can, our dismay when 
we learned that Rev. Myers is becom- 
ing a consistent two A. M. commuter 
from Middletown. And what's more, 
he had the nerve to flaunt her in our 

faces at the F. & M. game. 

* * * 

A word to the upperclassmen: The 
back walk to the post-office is to be 
used only by juniors and seniors, ac- 
cording to a rule which went into ef- 
fect at the beginning of this year. No 
upperclassman has the power to give 
a freshman or sophomore permission 
for purposes of propaganda or other- 
wise, to use the walk. 

* * * 

Chris Walk and Coda Sponaugle 
are wearing big smiles this week, 
while a Red Lion High alumnus by 
the name of Tschop is sporting a 
very sheepish look. Reason for both: 
Columbia High's 45-0 football victory 
over Red Lion last Friday night. 
We've heard Bob say that, after see- 
ing the game, he'll be more careful 
of his predicting hereafter. 

* * * 

Quite a nice turnout at that Buck 
and Wiggle Club meeting the other 
night. At the risk of encroaching 
upon a field which is foreign to us, 
let us say that the club's choice of 
"Tovarich" is an excellent one; we'll 
be looking forward to seeing it. 

* * * 

Now that fall is definitely here, and 
the nights are becoming cooler, we 
are beginning to enjoy a good night's 
sleep, with the enjoyment becoming 
most apparent just when it's time to 
get up. Usually our comfort wins, 
and we stay in bed; the other morn- 
ing, however, something went wrong 

and as we were shivering into onj, 
clothes, we happened to glance out 
over the campus. What to our won. 
dering eyes should appear but Ehr. 
hart and his frau battling it out 05 
the tennis court. Evidently they' re 
warm-blooded — or is it the other way 
around? We must've forgotten. 

Having ju. t completed a lengthy 
bull-session on European affairs, w e 
have concluded that the concensus of 
opinion on the campus is preponder. 
antly against Herr Hitler and his 
stooges. Admiration for the Czechs 
seems to be rather widespread; and 
many local prophets are condemning 
Britain and France for so hurriedly 
forsaking a country for the creation 
of which they were themselves direct- 
ly responsible, in order to run and 
hide from the Bogey Man. But — and 
this is the one encouraging note in an 
otherwise drab picture — everybody 
concerned seems to be glad that there 
is to be no war — at least not for the 
present. In this sentiment we heart- 
ily concur, and to prove it, we'll say, 

"Vive peace!" 

* * * 

What with "open house" in the 
Men's Dorm drawing near and all 
that, a word of caution to the girls is 
in order. Be wary, girls, of manners 
assumed especially for the occasion; 
but by all means make it a point to 
visit Screwball Corner (colloquial ex- 
pression for the west end of the sec- 
ond floor). Your time will be well 

* * * 

We have heard of rash statements 
which put the stater far out on a 
limb; but the ironbound bucket which 
is this week's prize goes without any 
competition to Dick Kauffman for 
his widely publicized statement of a 
few days ago. Aside to Miss Sechrist: 
We don't know to what extent you 
pamper Dick in private, but the mid- 
dle of the campus is a bit open to 

* * * 

A big bunch of orchids to Ed Mc- 
Ferren, new baton-slinger-arounder 
for the band, who is the best drum- 
major we've seen around here for 
some time. Our band is of a suffic- 
iently high calibre to deserve the best 
'in the line of leaders — and at last it 
seems to have gotten a square deal. 

Keep up the classy work, Ed! 

* * * 

Evidently some of our football- 
minded gals went to Lancaster on 
Saturday with more than the game » 
mind. Hearts are thumping and 
bumping all over the campus, and 'ti s 
said that the aforementioned disturb- 
ances are directly attributable to the 
masculine charms of one Ed Schillo> 
a Frackville boy, who is now know" 
as "Earthquake." The boy must have

\^ith the Dutchmen 

Following the 27-12 set-back ad- 
ministered to the Flying Dutchmen on 
s t Saturday by Alan Holman's Dip- 
lomats, it would probably be justiti- 
a ble to get out the old towel and cry 
y ie blues. In _.pite of this unexpect- 
ed reverse at Williamson Field the 
tf jH edition of the Flying Dutchmen 
still appear to be the strongest squad 
since 1935. Although breaks piayea 

major part in the F. & M. victory, 
lt was evident that the Lancaster 

, u men were clever enough to take 
advantage of the spotty iootball ex- 
ited by the Frockmen. 

Spotty football probably best de- 
scribes the play of the locals, with 
brilliant running and passing in briet 
moments sandwiched between periods 
of sloppy play. Eagerness and ten- 
sion, no doubt due to the buck fever 
of the opening game, was a big factor 
in the defeat with penalties aiding the 
devonians in several scoring drives. 
Weidman's early charge in the first 
quarter gave the Diplomats a 
live yard gain that placed the Lan- 
caster boys inches from payoff ground. 

Chris Walk is our idea of a typical 
Flying Dutchman. His flying tackles 
and headlong charges left him in mid- 
air most of the afternoon. The scrap- 
py spirit displayed by the plucky safe- 
ty man was evident throughout the 
battle and seemed highest when the 
going was roughest. 

The work of Bernie Grabusky at 
end and Ed Schillo in the backfield 
was probably the most pleasing fea- 
tures of the Blue and White part of 
the contest. Grabusky played his 
new post in commendable style scor- 
ing L. V.'s first six-pointer on a pass 
from Kress. Schillo looks like a find 
in the backfield quartet. His hard 
tackling when he was backing up the 
line marks him as a threat to all op- 
posing runners. His alert work in 
the secondary led to a beautiful pass 
interception which required a display 
of acrobatics to complete; while his 
running, especially after he had grab- 
bed Kress' aerial for Valley's second 
score, seem to earn him a starting 
post in the backfield. 

Frankie Kuhn's passing and the 
line work of Captain Bob Brown, re- 
liable Frank Rozman and Fred Bosn- 
yak were other sparkling bits in the 
Blue and White performance. Bill Ra- 
kow's neat job of pass-stealing al- 
most netted the locals a touchdown 
late in the second period but unfor- 
tunately he was nailed before he got 
too far. 

Drifting over to our opponents, it 
must be said that the Diplomats have' 
a powerful, well-balanced squad, with 
beef and speed to waste. Plunging 
Sammy Boeder was quite effectively 
bottled up except when he got near 
the goal stripe. Flowers and shifty 
Albie Asplin supplied most of the 
funning attack displayed by the Dip- 
lomats during their touchdown drives. 


!s possible that in an effort to stop 

Boeder's smashing line drives, the 
flanks were left too unguarded against 
circling runs of Flowers and Asplin. 

In viewing the success of some of

Diplomats Smother 
Valley Gridsters 
In Lancaster Win 

Breaks, Penalties Aid F. & M. 
Grabusky, Schillo Score 

Lebanon Valley College's gridders 
inaugurated their 1938 campaign 
with a 27-12 loss to Franklin and 
Marshall College at Lancaster on Sat- 
urday. Miscues on the part of both 
teams marred the fray. By taking ad- 
vantage of the errors, the Diplomats 
were able to score 3 unearned touch- 
downs, which proved to be more than 
the L. V. Collegians could do. Al- 
though the score indicates a slight 
runaway, that does not happen to be 
the situation. Aided by the breaks, 
some screwy officiating, and a fair 
display of power, F. and M. forged 
to the front, never to be overtaken, 
although the Dutchmen did come back 
fighting in the last quarter to score 
their two tallies. 

Lebanon Valley kicked off to F. and 
M. and then forced them to kick after 
they failed to gain through the line. 
After several punt exchanges, the 
Dutchmen were pushed back to their 
own goal line on a bad pass from cen- 
ter. Kress kicked from behind his own 
goal line to about the 35 yard stripe. 
There the Diplomats swung into ac- 
tion. A pass, an end run, another 
pass put F. and M. on L. V. C.'s 6 
yard line. An off-side penalty brought 
the ball to the one from where Roe- 
der plunged over for a score and la- 
ter kicked the extra point. 

The Dutchmen received the kick-off 
and proceeded to their own 30 where 
they were forced to kick. A wild 
heave from the pivot spot pushed the 
Valley back to their own 6 yard line 
where Kress fell on the ball. On the 
next play he kicked to his own 28 
marker. There the Diplomats again 
utilized their opportunity and threw 
two passes to score. Roeder kicked 
the extra point. 

At about this time the Valleyites 
decided to do a little playing of their 
own. A pass was good for about 40 
yards and brought the ball to F. and 
M.'s 27 yard stripe. On four attempts 
the Valley hit the line, but failed to 
gain a first down by inches. F. and 
M. tried a quick kick that was blocked 
by Bulota. Brown scooped the ball 
and started to run. When he saw he 
was to be tackled he tossed a lateral 
to Schillo who was downed. An argu- 
ment burst forth at this point and 
finally the Dutchmen were deprived 
of the ball by the officials who were 
slightly punchy at the time. 

In the third quarter F. and M. 
scored again after a sustained drive 
down the field climaxed by Roeder's 
plunge over the last white mark. He 
converted the extra point to bring the 
score to 21-0. Another break gave F. 
and M. their final tally in the last 
stanza when the Diplomats recovered 
a fumble on the Blue and White 3 
yard stripe. Roeder again plunged 
over for a score, but his attempt at 
a placement failed. 

The Valley's scores were gotten in 
the last quarter on two long passes. 
The Dutchmen got the ball on their 
own 38 and started a 62 yard drive 
that was climaxed by a long pass, 
Kress to Grabusky, for a score. Kress, 
Kuhn, and Walk did the ball carry 
ing in the drive that brought about 
the score. Walk missed the conver 

- The final tally resulted from a long 
pass tossed by Kress intended for 
Frey. Frey was covei-ed by two men, 

An interesting fact about Morav- 
ian College athletics is that in 1930 
football was revived after a lapse of 
25 years. In 1930 the Greyhounds 
played two opponents, but since then 
they have been gradually climbing up 
in the sports world.

but Schillo appeared from nowhere to

Dutchmen Prepare 
For Greyhounds 

Blue & White To Meet 
Flashy Moravian Eleven 

On Friday evening the Blue and 
White gridmen will make their sec- 
ond attempt to gain the initial win of 
the season when they clash with the 
Moravian College Greyhounds at 
Bethlehem under arclights. After a 
week's lay off since the Franklin and 
Marshall rout last Saturday, the Fly- 
ing Dutchmen will perhaps face an 
opponent just as sturdy, fleet, and 
daring as their Lancaster foes. 

Smarting under the surprise hand- 
ed them at Lancaster, Coach Frock 
and his squad have been busy through- 
out the week polishing up weaknesses 
that stood out so prominently in the 
F. and M. fray. A new lineup may 
take the field against the Blue ana 
Grey eleven on Friday due to the 
work of several men in the opener. 
Ed Schillo, the ex-Frackville lumi- 
nary, will probably start in the back- 
field, as his tight defensive play cou- 
pled with a pass-catching talent in 
the game with the Diplomats was out 
standing. Even if Schillo does not 
start the game, he is bound to see 
plenty of action under the new $5,000 
lighting system at Moravian. Chris 
Walk will again start in the quarter- 
back position solely on his work last 
week when he was an invaluable de- 
fense man and field general. Frankie 
Kuhn and his passing ability have 
earned a starting place among the 
ball-toters. The fourth position is open 
and apparently Ed Kress or Bill Ra- 
kow will fill it when the starter's 
whistle toots. 

The line will have few changes, 
with Brown and Grabusky at the end 
posts, flanking Frank Rozman and 
Fred Bosynak. At guard Coda Spon- 
augle may steal a starter's berth from 
either Bulota or Weidman, while Bel- 
mer will again handle the center 
chores. Grabusky's surprising play at 
end, was a standout in the Valley

cause and it looks as though Frock's 
move was a wise one. 

As for the Greyhounds, Coach Ed 
Suavely is starting his second year 
as coach with a fast combination that 
stresses passing more than any other 
phase of offensive football. Long not- 
ed for her man-in-motion type of 
play, Moravian will be a hard obsta- 
cle to surmount. Although the Val- 
leyites will no doubt be on the re- 
bound, the Blue and Grey will be 
fresh froih a 6 to victory over Itha- 
ca last Friday night. 

The Moravian lineup will probably 
find Rosati at quarter, Fritchman 
and Weiss at half, and Buzzard at 
full. Rosati is a transfer student at 
Moravian and hails from Bethlehem 
where he was a member of the Beth- 
lehem State Scholastic Champions. He 
is a hard runner and a good blocker. 
A veteran back of the triple threat 
nature, Weiss uses left-handed passes 
to confound his opponents and kicks 
and runs with equal skill. Fritchman 
is a Sophomore ball-carrier who is 
making rapid strides to stardom. Buz- 
zard is a four year man, who was out 
last year due to injuries, but is back 
carrying out hjs blocking and defen- 
sive chores. 

Mushrush and Blasco will hold 
down the wings, with Burkhart and 
Schibanoff at tackle. Gregg will do the 
pivot work, while Male and Jones will 
occuply the guard positions.

In Intramural Tilt 

Touch Football Game Ends 
In 24-0 Win For Upperclass 

The new Men's Senate - La Vie 
sports program was officially opened 
Saturday morning, October 1, with a 
touch-football game on the campus be- 
tween the sophomores and the seniors, 
the latter ringing the victory bells 
to the tune of 24-0. 

The game was called for 8 :30, the 
seniors arrived at 8:45, the sopho- 
mores at 9:15, and the game finally 
got underway at 9:30. The sopho- 
mores won the toss-up and decided to 
kick off to the seniors. On the first 
play after the kick off, "Jakey" Um- 
berger, the star of the game, caught 
a pass thrown by Carl Dempsey, and 
raced over the goal line for the first 
touchdown. The seniors then kicked 
off and after holding the sophomores 
in their own territory for downs, 
again scored. The remainder of the 
first half both sides went up and down 
the field, the seniors scoring one more 
touchdown, making the score 18-0 at 
the end of the first half. 

The second half the seniors kicked 
off to the sophomores. With neither 
team gaining any advantage, the play 
was uneventful until the closing min- 
utes of the game, when, on a tricky 
reverse executed by Dempsey and Bai- 
er who in turn threw a short pass 
over the goal line to Thomas, the sen- 
iors made their fourth and last touch- 
down. However, on the last play of 
the game, the seniors again threat- 
ened when Baier threw a long pass 
over the goal line intended for Thom- 
as, but the ball was knocked down 
making the final score 24-0. 

The starting teams were: Seniors — 
Zerbe, Smith, Baier, Dempsey, Leh- 
man, Umberger and Goodman; Soph- 
omores — Shadle, Derick, Dressier, 
Kitzmiller, Reber, Creeger, and 
H&ckman. At the beginning of the 
second half, Haverstick substituted 
for Kitzmiller in the sophomore line- 
up and Thomas and Silvers went in 
for Zerbe and Smith in the senior 
line-up. The officials for the game 
were Danny Seiverling, referee, and 
Bob Artz, time-keeper. 

Two games will be played this com- 
ing Saturday morning, the first be- 
tween the seniors and freshmen, and 
the second between the juniors and 

What They Say 

Question — What is your opin- 
ion of the inter-class athletic pro- 
gram as sponsored by the Men's 

Carl Dempsey — I think that this is 
a good idea to be sponsored by the 
Senate since it tends to arouse inter- 
est on the campus that was appar- 
ently dormant in the past. 

Robert Artz — I think that it is a 
very good idea because it creates a 
better spirit within the class and 
keener competitive spirit between the 

Solomon Caulker — I always thought 
that out-door intra-mural activities 
were a grave neglect in this college. 
I am highly in favor of this timely 
Senate action. 

Paul Stauffer — I think that it will 
create a better spirit of sportsman- 
ship between the classes and build up 
greater unity within the class itself. 

Americo Taranto — I think it is a 
good idea because it gives more stu- 
dents a chance to participate in these 
activities than would otherwise be

Girls Finish Plans 
For Net Tournament 

The girls' tennis tournament will 
get under way this week with the 
playing off of preliminaries and first 
matches. All girl students are eligi- 
ble. Isabel Shatto, in charge of girls 
tennis for this year, has set Saturday, 
October 8, as the deadline for playing 
of preliminary and first matches. 

Those who have signed for the tour- 
nament are Louise Saylor, Louise De 
Huff, Dorothy Long, Edna Ruther- 
ford, Ruth Mateucci, Louella Schin- 
del, Betty Reed, Floda Trout, Betty 
Schillot, Rae Kaufman, Thelma Trupe, 
Dorian Loser, Marjorie Haley, Esther 
Bender, Madge Meily, Doris Stabley, 
Martha Davies, and Phoebe Geyer. 

Miss Henderson is aiming to teach 
every sophomore girl in her physical 
education classes at least the rudi- 
ments of tennis and archery this year. 
The tennis matches are not only foi 
those who are expert players, but al- 
so for anyone who wants the experi- 
ence of match play. Miss Shatto ana 
Miss Henderson are planning a girls 
doubles tournament, and perhaps 
some mixed doubles matches after the 

Paul Myers — It is an interesting 
way to instill class spirit into the 
activities of the fellows. 

Thomas Guinivan — As a whole, 1 
am in favor of it. I have always fell 
that what the students at L. V. have 
needed is more recreation and exer- 
cise to offset the scholastic routine. 
It is an excellent change to develop 
competition between the classes and 
to develop a spirit of sportsmanship. 
It will also keep many students who 
are members of the Hershey Commu- 
nity Club on the campus for their ex- 
ercise rather than taking a costly trip 
to Hershey. 

Charles Reber — As an integrated 
program it will be far-reaching and 

Fillmore Kohler — It will tend to- 
ward better class spirit. 

Lynn Kitzmiller — There are many 
fellows who no longer take gym and 
they will be kept physically keen by 
active participation in these sports. 

Robert Weiler — It is a good oppor- 
tunity for the mediocre athletes to 
compete in sports and will teach co- 
operation and sportsmanship. 

Edward Minnich — The boys will co- 
operate more and the boys who nor- 
mally occupy the sidelines will get 
the spirit and join in. 

Richard Bell — I think that it is a 
good all-around chance for the aver- 
age student to get needed physical ac- 
tivity and helps to develop sportsman- 
like conduct. 

John Zettlemoyer — It gets down to 
the boys who are usually suppressed 
by the fellows who are physically su- 
perior to them.

With the gridiron mania now firm-

A "no game" was ruled in the Uni-

I was once a cheerful being who 
^•earned of being a featured colum- 
nist. That is the past. Once I weigh- 
ed all of 108 lbs. But fate (in shape 
of a dark haired villain called "ye ed") 
decreed that I write book reviews, 
jvjow I weigh 101 lbs. 

Nonetheless, since write reviews I 
must, write them I shall. They shall 
be such that readers will scorn the 
erstwhile popular vitriolic droolings 
of a scandal-monger and turn first to 
m y book reviews — at least, I hope 
that is what happens. 

At the very outset, pray take men- 
tal note of the fact that I read books 
before reviewing them. None of this 
knavish copying of blurbs for me. 
From these statements you are sup- 
posed to infer that perhaps I know 
what I am talking about. I appenu 
call numbers for convenience. 

If fiction is your forte, I recom- 
mend Northwest Passage by Kenneth 
Roberts. It is a novel with an his- 
torical background, which is well 
worth the reading despite its 7^9 
pages. Indeed, for its length it is 
not as dull as many a short story. 
Very well written, it contains good 
descriptions and racy bits of humor. 
Call No. F R 542n. 
Listen for a Lonesome Drum, by 
arl Carmer, is a history of different 
sects which had their origin in New 
York State. I read it because the title 
intrigued me, and I was not disap- 
pointed. There is a certain some- 
thing to Carmer's style that makes 
even mere trifles interesting. 914.47 
— call no. 

Four Hundred Million Customers by 
Carl Crow, is a study of business tac- 
tics used by and upon the Chinese, and 
incidentally sheds revealing light 
upon Chinese character. Every word 
is interesting, and there are some 
screamingly funny passages. Call no. 
915.1— C885f. 

For you would-be scientists, and for 
any one who gets a thrill out of bio- 
graphy (which, in this case, is any- 
one) I recommend Paul DeKraif's 
Microbe Hunters. It tells of eminent 
scientists — the kind that peer through 
microscopes — from the Dutchman 
Leeuwenhock, who first discovered 
the wonderful power of a microscope, 
on down to Ehrlich, who discovered a 
cure for syphillis. It takes a long 
time to read, but it's a fascinating 
book, well worth anyone's time. Call 
no. 590.92— D369. 

That's all this time. More anon, 
my readers are pleased.

The Green Blotter Club held a busi-

day, October 5, in Room 5 of the 
Administration Building, to set a new 
date for the regular monthly meeting. 
Dr. Struble meets an extension class 
on Thursday evenings, which are the 
evenings when the club meets, hence 
the need for setting a new date. The 
outcome was not known when this

Jenkins Addresses 

Student Prayer Group 

Last evening in Philo Hall the 
Wednesday evening prayer services 
were held. These services are under 
the joint leadership of the Y. W. and 
Y. M. C. A. William Jenkins, a 
Junior Transfer student from Shena- 
doah College of Virginia, gave a very 
fine and interesting talk. He was as- 
sisted by Robert Guinivan, who con- 
ducted the devotions. Carl Ehrhart 
had charge of the program. The aim 
of this weekly prayer service is to 
encourage the students to take about 
fifteen minutes from their hustle and 
bustle for a religious meditation. The 
service next week will be conducted 
by the Y. W. C. A. and everyone is 
heartily invited to attend.

Daylight On Campus 

By Aurora 

We were just about to indulge in 
the luxury of self-satisfaction, hand- 
ing a bouquet to the men day-students 
as a token of appreciation of our new 
standards of culture and studious- 
ness, when a Freshman bawled rau- 
cously, "Any of youse guys got 
change for a quarter?" We do not en- 
vy Dr. Stine and Dr. Struble, whose 
pleasant duty it is to domesticate wild 
animals like that. 

Erdman, Rutter, and Deck were 
discussing golf one day last week. Au- 
rora got the impression that any of 
these gentlemen could make Bobby 
Jones look like a novice. 

Part of a light had fallen and cov- 
ered the floor with its fragments. Dr. 
Reynolds was asking his Methods 
class what they would do as teachers 
in case of such an emergency. He ad- 
vised that the teacher remain calm. 
Arriving late, Elwood Derr demon- 
strated the principle of nonchalance 
by sitting directly below the hanging 

Typical day-student bedtime story: 
Kantor diove from Lebanon to Har- 
risburg, according to his own modest 
confession, in twenty-two minutes flat. 
Furthermore, his speedometer regis- 
tered ninety-five m. p. h. between 
Annville and Palmyra. The feat oc- 
curred at two o'clock in the morning. 
We believe you, Kantor, but we want 
to know more about this strange raa- 
titudinal exhilaration. 

An upperclassman was instructing 
some Freshmen in the super-extra-ul- 
tra rules for day-students as publish- 
ed in the Frosh Bible. First, he men- 
tioned that the changing of clothes in 
the day-men's rendezvous would not 
be tolerated. Impudently they in- 
formed him that the locker rooms 
were closed except to the football 
team. Next, he called attention to 
the prohibition upon the use of pro- 
fanity, and upon their countenances 
were to be seen the most sophomoric 
expressions ever worn by Freshmen 
since Cain and Abel were in rompers. 
A bit flustered, the preceptor went on 
to the rule about putting cigarette 
butts and ashes in the receptacles pro- 
vided for them, observed that not an 
ash tray was in sight, and dismissed 
the subject with a sigh — as much as 
to say, "Well, it wus a good rule!" 

Flashes: The Barkart boy is sport- 
ing a new pipe that contribut3s con- 
siderably to his baronial beatitude. . . 
Chess is now enjoying a period of 
vogue among the day-students. . . . 
Dick Moody claims that Deck's coat is 
not consumer's goods, but capital. He 
explains that it will eventually be sold 
to the rag man. Deck threatens any 
Marxist who attempts to confiscate it.

to reading sensational, pseudo-scienti- 
fic literature. . . What is this we hear 
about Hally Derr's interest in the 
girls of his home church's Christian

ting down to Fundamentals. At any 
rate, Aurora will keep his ears open 
until he speaks again in next week's 

Y. W.C.A. Announces 
Plans For Future 

At a house-party held in Mt. 
Gretna over the week-end of Septem- 
ber 23, the members of the Y. W. C. 
A. Cabinet, with Mrs. C. A. Lynch as 
adviser, discussed their plans for the 
year. Various committees were ap- 
pointed and important discussions 
were held in determining what would 
be carried on by the "Y" this year. 
Several of the committees will ar- 
range programs for different enter- 
tainments which will be held through- 
out the year. Sometime soon a drive 
for the World Fellowship Fund will 
be undertaken. 

Yesterday afternoon between four- 
thirty and five-thirty o'clock, the "Y" 
Cabinet sponsored a tea in North Hall 
for all women students in honor of 
both "big and little sisters," with 
Dorothy Yeakel and Edna Rutherford 
in charge. Lucie Cook rendered a 
vocal selection and Myrtle Leff gave 
a reading. 

On Sunday evening, October 9, the 
annual recognition service will take 
place. At that time all new girls will 
receive their pins, and thereby become

4, , ^ 

At a meeting held Tuesday, Octo- 
ber 4, the sophomore class elected of- 
ficers for the first semester of this 
year. The following were elected: 
William Habbyshaw, president; Rob- 
ert Hackman, vice-president; Alexan- 
der Rakow, treasurer; and Josephine 
Emst, secretary. 

The nominations and the close vot- 
ing in some instances revealed many 
splits and political parties present in 
the class that were not so noticeable 
last year. Approximately fifty votes 
were cast. 

South Hall Open House 
Many Students Attend 

South Hall girls opened the por- 
tals of Delphian Hall on Saturday ev- 
ening to the students of the college 
for a few hours of fun and entertain- 
ment. As the first of such affairs to 
be held on the campus this year and 
in spite of the disappointing outcome 
of the F. and M. game in the after- 
noon, it was a great success. The 
party, chaperoned by Miss Margaret 
Wood, played ping pong or cards and 
danced to the music of various or- 
chestras broadcasting at that time. A 
few refreshments helped to make the 
evening an enjoyable one for all. 

Senate Accepts New 
Athletic League 

{Continued from 'page 1) 

plan calls for five man teams with 
three singles and one doubles-match 
constituting a team match. 

The hand-ball league is similarly 
consisting of five man teams with the 
play taking place in the hand-ball 
court in the Administration Building. 
Here the matches will be called dur- 
ing the afternoon to allow day stu- 
dents to participate and also because 
of poor lighting facilities. Basketball 
is to run similarly to last year, while 
volley ball will be arranged for in the 
Alumni Gymnasium. Soft ball and 
tennis will be spring sports. 

The rules to be followed in all con- 
tests will be decided upon by the 
Men's Senate and all officials will be 
appointed by this body. One rule to 
be carried out is that any man en- 
gaged in a major sport can not parti- 
cipate in a class league. This is to 
prevent natural athletes from hog- 
ging positions and to reach more stu- 
dents who need the benefits of phy- 
sical exercise. 

The scoring system to be used is:

The cast provides roles for eight 
men and seven women. Casting will 
be done on Monday, October 10, in 
Philo Hall, at 4:30 P. M. and again 
at 7:00 P. M., and* will be in charge 
of Dr. Struble, assisted by Dr. Clyde 
Stine. All persons interested have 
been urged to try out. 

In each league first place team 4 
points, and last place 1 point. The 
class having the highest total at the 
end of the year will be awarded the 
trophy. The records of the various 
leagues will be kept by persons ap- 
pointed by the Men's Senate. 

Wig and Buckle Club 
Admits New Members 

The opening meeting of the Wig 
and Buckle Dramatics Club was held 
on Tuesday evening, September 27, in 
Room 16 of the Ad Building, for the 
purpose of taking in new members 
and making plans for the club's year- 
ly activities. 

Twenty-seven persons, most of them 
freshmen, expressed interest in cam. 
pus dramatics and were admitted to 
the club as cub members. 

The meeting was in charge of Rob- 
ert P. Tschop, president of the club. 
By way of introduction Mr. Tschop 
gave a short talk in which he explain- 
ed to the newcomers the principles 
and activities of the club and dis- 
cussed briefly various plays which are 
being considered by the Executive 
Committee and Dr. George G. Struble, 
the club adviser, as possible choices 
for the annual presentation in No- 

Then followed registration of new 
members, after which short talks per- 
taining to various phases of club work 
were given by Paul Horn, vice-presi- 
dent, and Dr. Struble. The meeting 
was then adjourned. 

y.M.C.A. To Inaugurate 
New Series Of Vespers 

This Sunday night will see the in- 
auguration of what is hoped will be a 
regular series of combined vespers 
and open foi-ums. These services or 
meetings will be sponsored by the Y. 
M. C. A. cabinet and will include dis- 
cussion of various topics of current 
interest, to college students especial- 
ly, along the lines of religion, person- 
ality development, and understanding 
of life. 

A member of the faculty will lead 
the meeting on Sunday night, build- 
ing the discussion about the question, 
"Can religion give a man a technique 
for the highest personal efficiency?" 
Opportunity will be given for re- 
sponse and questioning by the audi- 
ence. The program will also include 
an opening devotional reading in ac- 
cord with the topic.

in readiness. While the bonfire was 
blazing furiously the cheerleading 
squad led the crowd in songs and 
yells. Short pep talks were given by 
several students, after which more 
songs and yells, climaxed by the sing- 
ing of the Alma Mater, ended this 
portion of the rally. 

The return to town was made a la

North Hall. The procession led even- 
tually to the center of the campus, 
where another rendition of the Alma

pr. Struble Selects 
"Tovarich" Cast 
For W.&B. Annual 

Marbarger, Aungst Snare 
Leading Roles In Play, 
Horn Heads Technicians 

Approximately sixty students turn- 
ed out on Monday evening, October 
10, when the Wig and Buckle Dra- 
matics Club held tryouts for fifteen 
roles in "Tovarich," the two-act play 
by Robert Sherwood which has been 
selected by the club as its annual ma- 
jor production. Casting was in charge 
of Dr. George G. Struble, assisted by 
Dr. Clyde Stine, and was held in Phi- 
lo Hall. 

Due to the exceptionally large num- 
ber of aspirants, the largest to try 
out for a Wig and Buckle, or, for that 
matter, any other play, for several 
years, competition for the parts was 
unusually keen. The struggle centered 
especially about the parts of Tatiana 
and Charles Dupont, for each of 
which several experienced people were 

The cast, as announced on Tuesday, 
is as follows: Mikail, Dean Aungst; 
Tatiana, Jean Marbarger ; Olga, Ruth 
Matteucci; Brekenski, William Jen- 
kins; Chauffourier, Harvey Snyder; 
Martelleau, Frank Shenk; Fernande 
Dupont, Janet Whitesell ; Charles Du- 
pont, Robert Hackman; Louise, the 
cook, Lucy Cook; Georges Dupont, 
William Bender; Helene Dupont, Lou- 
ise Saylor; Concierge, Richard Bell; 
Mme. Van Hemert, Laurene Dreas; 
Mem. Chauffourier, Barbara Bow- 
man; Commissar Gorotchenko, Robert 

The cast swung into immediate ac- 
tion with a reading rehearsal on 
Tuesday night under the supervision 
of Dr. Stine, and all concerned seem- 
ed anxious to get to serious work on 
the play. Regular nightly rehearsals 
have already begun. 

Indications point to "Tovarich" as 
a Promising prospect for smash hit

Weekend In Review 

The weekend which arrives to- 
morrow night is chiefly notable as 
the most active thus far in the col- 
lege year. Beginning with a Pep 
Dance on Friday night in prepar- 
ation for the football game with 
Hartwick College on Saturday, the 
program goes into full swing the 
following morning with two regu- 
larly scheduled interclass football 
games. The fifth annual Dad's Day 
will be observed Saturday with the 
piece de resistance being a ban- 
quet following the aforementioned 
football game, at which time Dr. 
Lynch and Dr. Black will speak, 
aided and abetted by several ex- 
temporaneous talks by several 

It behooves us as students to co- 
operate in making the weekend en- 
joyable to our visitors. While in 
the case of the Hartwick football 
squad this is hardly compatible 
with a Blue and White victory, all 
loyal Valleyites will be rooting for 
the Dutchmen to come through; 
and certainly we want to make the 
visiting dads our welcome guests. 
All aboard, then, for a large week- 
end; everybody out! 

Green Blotter Policy 

Outlined By Ink Spot 

By Francis Prutzman 
Freshman! Sophomores! Juniors! 
Seniors! Can you write? Would you 
like to improve your style? Are you 
interested at all in creative writing? 
If you can answer any or all of these 
questions in the affirmative you will 
want to become a member of the 
Green Blotter Club. For this club 
was organized to give students with 
interest and ability in such work a 
chance to write and to have their 
work criticized constructively by other 
members of the club. 

But you can't just decide to become 
a member and then join, it isn't quite 
that easy. Since more success is to 
be expected in this type of organi- 
zation when the membership is small, 
the number of members is limited to 
sixteen, four from each class. In order 
to become a member you must submit 
to the present members of the club 
for their judgment an article written 
by yourself. There is no limit as to 
the type of article. So that no pre- 
judices will enter into the selection of

S. H. Patterson Delivers 
New Chapel Series Talk 

Professor Speaks On 
"A Few Economic Trios" 

In a special chapel meeting last 
Tuesday morning the students of Leb- 
anon Valley were privileged to hear an 
address by Dr. S. H. Patterson, pro- 
fessor of Economics in the Wharton 
School of Finance and Commerce of 
the University of Pennsylvania and 
also in the Graduate School. Dr. Pat- 
terson is also a professor in Columbia 
University Summer School and has 
written a number of text books on 
economic and labor problems. 

Dr. Patterson spoke on "A Few 
Economic Trios." He pointed out that 
just as we are members of a three 
fold partnership, students, faculty, 
and alumni, so in economic life there 
are many threes. Among these trios 
there are three economic periods, 
namely, the New Industrial Revolu- 
tion beginning with the World War 
in 1914, the Great Depression from 
1929 to 1932, and the Period of Roose- 
velt Reconstruction at the present. 
These periods have brought three pro- 
blems centered about cultural life. 
They are inequality, insecurity, and 
instabiilty. In connection with this 
point Dr. Patterson illustrated how

Philo-Clio Societies 
Plan Play Production 

Goodman Will Direct 
Joint Session Program 

At a meeting of the joint commit- 
tees chosen to arrange the program 
for the Clio-Philo joint session to be 
held October 29, it was decided that 
instead of having the customary pro- 
gram of individual musical numbers 
by both societies they would combine 
the talent of their l'espective groups 
and produce a one act play. 

The play chosen for the occasion is 
The New Bride, a farce comedy by 
Lois Howell. The cast for the produc- 
tion has already been selected and 
rehearsals are in full swing. The cast 
named is as follows: James Vaughn,

Attention, Men! 

A call is being issued this week 
to all men students on campus, 
perhaps better, a general invita- 
tion to the same group, to go vis- 
iting this next Sunday afternoon. 
The inviolate sanctity of North, 
South, East, and West Halls will 
temporarily be dispensed with, and 
they will be thrown open to the in- 
spection of the general public. 

Fellows, here's your chance to 
see how the "other half" lives, that 
is, if you don't receive a distorted 
picture through the fact that a 
tew days advance warning has been 
given for the mobilization of the 
bucket, broom, and dustcloth bri- 
gade. However, nothing can be 
done to alter the shape of the 
rooms on such short notice, and it 
is promised that the walls will be 
in approximately the same spot, 
despite whatever goes on in the 
way of preparation within them. 
The calling privilege will extend 
from two to five o'clock. 

The idea is also reactive in na- 
ture by virtue of the fact that the 
same opportunity will be extended 
to the girls to visit the Men's Dorm 
the week after, or very shortly. 

Houck Outlines System 

To New Members 

Miss Jeanne Houck, president of 
the Women's Athletic Association, 
called a meeting of all new students 
on Tuesday, October 4, at one o'clock 
in the Ad. building for the purpose 
of the organization. She first of all 
introduced the cabinet members to the 
new students. She then explained that 
the W. A. A. tries to carry on a pro- 
gram which will in one of its phases 
interest every girl. She explained the 
point system — a system whereby each 
girl is rewarded for her efforts. In 
order to become a member a girl must 
earn 200 points. In order to be eli- 
gible for a letter 600 points, a chev- 
ron — 1,000 points, and a star — 2,000 
points. Only Senior girls are eligible 
for stars. This system gives the girls 
something definite to work for. 

The ways of winning points is as 
follows: Hiking — 10 points per hike. 
Hockey — organized team — 75 points, 
winning team — 125 points, honor team 
— 150 points. Basketball — same as 
hockey. Tennis — 15 hours — 100 tour- 
nament — 115 points, finals — 125

Last Quarter Tallies 
Clinch Bitter Battle 
Vaughn Scores For L. V. 

In a hard fought battle, Lebanon 
Valley College came from behind to 
score a touchdown early in the fourth 
period to defeat Moravian College, 
9-6, under the arc-lights at Bethle- 
hem last Friday night. 

The Dutchmen scored first when 
they chased Rosati over his own goal 
line and then downed him. Late in 
the first half, a Lebanon Valley of- 
fensive threat was stopped on Mora- 
vian's ten yard line. Rosati, taking 
the ball on the first play, tried to 
sweep the end, but Frey, T. Rozman, 
and Schillo shoved him back over his 
own goal line and tossed him for a 
safety making the score 2-0 as the 
first half ended. 

However, the Greyhounds were not 
to be defeated without a fight and 
came back in the third quarter to 
snare a 6-2 lead. Kress' pass from 
punt formation was intercepted by 
Compardo who raced from the 50 to 
the 28 yard line before he was tac- 
kled. Rosati tossed a pass to Fritch- 
man from first down on L. V. C.'s 16 
yard stripe. Rosati completed another 
pass, but it was called back for an 
offsides penalty on the Greyhounds. 
On the next play Rosati dropped back 
and tossed the same pass into the flat 
that was caught by Fritchman who 
ran the remaining distance unmolest- 

Not to be outdone the Valley lads 
came back early in the fourth period 
to push across the deciding score. Af- 
ter Moravian's touchdown, Lebanon 
Valley received the kickoff, but were 
unsuccessful in their offensive at- 
tempts. Kress, kicking on third down, 
booted a nice one far into Moravian 
territory. Fritchman fumbled the

9 clashing desires 

It is an accepted scientific principle 
as well as what is sometimes referred 
to as plain common sense that two 
physical bodies cannot occupy the 
same space at the same time. Some 
philosophers argue the point that 
there is such a thing as space, refus- 
ing to attribute reality to the con- 
cept; but it is expected that for the 
sake of the present discourse the re- 
ality of space will be conceded. 

In connection with this spatial the- 
ory, or fact, an interesting condition 
arose in chapel Tuesday morning, or 
at least threatened to arise, when the 
tidings of the days prospective meet- 
ings revealed the fact that no less 
than three (3) gatherings were sched- 
uled for Room 5 in the Administra- 
tion Building at one o'clock. This in 
itself was not too serious a problem, 
for it happens by the grace of God 
and the wisdom of the contractor that 
other rooms were included in the 
plans for building besides Room 5. 
such as Room 16, Room 27, and a fevv 
more. But this particular coincidence 
is an indication of something lying 
deeper and extending further than 
the conflict among the Fencing Club, 
the International Relations Club, and 
the Who Knows What Club as re- 
gards place of meeting. As has beer, 
mentioned, there fortunately are quitt 
a few rooms in the Administration 
Building itself, and there seems tc 
be quite a bit of unfilled space in the 
Library, not to cite the instances in 
which open-air meetings have been 
conducted with great success. 

If the clash among the various 
clubs, organizations, associations, and 
societies were one limited to the con- 
sideration of space or room only, it 
would be of little value to bring the 
problem up for discussion. Such a 
problem admits of solution too easily. 
But it is not limited to such a simple 
consideration, for it branches out to 
include a clash of interests, of ap- 
peals to the individual student; it is 
a matter of time, rather than space. 

Because of the great number of or- 
ganizations on campus, and the de- 
finitely-felt, perhaps over-felt need of 
numerous business meetings for each 
organization, some little conflict is un- 
avoidable. But such conflict can and 
must be kept to a minimum, if the 
student is to get the most out of the 
organizations to which he belongs. 
And he cannot get this advantage if 
he is torn between two desires, two 
functions if you desire, one of which 
he is obliged to lay aside, no matter 
what it merits. 

It is the duty of the Activities Com- 
mittee of the Faculty to prevent a 
conflict between activities on campus, 

in so far as they are able. And the 
Committee acts when it has the in- 
formation it needs and when the right 
persons have the information. Then 
is there any logical and irrefutable 
reason that there should have been 
two hikes on Tuesday night, one spon- 
sored by the International Relations 
Club and the other by the W. A. A.? 
Both of these were held primarily to 
interest Freshmen, and the clash of 
interest is at once apparent. If each 
was recognized and sponsored by one 
member of the Committee without the 
other's knowledge, can it not be as- 
sumed that there is a definite lack of 
a uniform schedule, or perhaps more 
exactly, a lack of a complete schedule 
of activities? 

This year's football schedule in- 
cludes only two games played at 
home, on successive Saturdays. What 
is to be drawn from the fact that 
next Saturday, when the first home 
game is scheduled, the hockey team 
is scheduled to play away? The same 
question must be put forward in re- 
gards to the following Saturday, when 
.n the midst of all the excitement of 
one-hali of the home football games 
and Homecoming Day, an all-day 
aiockey Play-Day is also on the books, 
r'or Lebanon Valley's campus. 

What is to be done about the situa- 
tion, if anything? Can it be reme- 
died? If not, why not? And if so, 
what remedy shall be used? It is to 
be recommended that a calendar be 
posted of all future special college 
activities, that closer attention be 
paid to the bulletin board which does 
set down the regular schedule of acti- 
vities, and that there be closer coop- 
eration with the Activities Committee 
as well as within that body, and 
among all the administrative heads.

The calm peace of Monday night's 
moonlight was rudely shattered by a 
loud crash as of splintered metal, fol- 
lowed by mutterings which might 
have been imprecations of some sort 
— or possibly weak moans for help. 
Subsequent events disclosed that the 
victim of the mishap was Miss Gil- 
lespie, who unfortunately failed to see 
the ditch which somehow got into her 
path. Her companions, Prof, and 
Mrs. Carmean and Mr. Freeland, hur- 
riedly went to her assistance. We

keynote: Go slow and easy. First

the illusions are heightened by what

Freshmen Topple 
Sophmores 18-0 
In Colorless Fray 

Mease Leads Newcomers 
To One-Sided Triumph 

On Saturday afternoon the fresh- 
man touch football squad, led by the 
stellar playing of Ralph Mease, con- 
quered the lowly sophomores to the 
tune of 18-0. The game was a one- 
sided affair all the way through with 
the freshmen scoring on the fourth 
play of the game on a perfectly-exe- 
cuted pass from Mease to Dresel. 
Against the brilliant play of the 
freshman flash, who intercepted seven 
sophomore passes, the second-year 
men were unable to hold their own 
and the game turned into an utter 
rout. This battle was the second shut- 
out handed the sophomores in the 
league race, having been whitewashed 
by the seniors on the previous week 

The performance of Mease was aid- 
ed by the work of Dresel and Stevens 
who made several fine catches of 
Mease's aerials. Dresel accounted for 
two of the Frosh scores while Mease 
added the third on a brilliant ball- 
touting jaunt in the third period. 

The sophomores were handicapped 
by the non-appearance of many of 
their regulars, but Derick and Whit-

Seniors Humbled 
By Junior Gridmen 
In Bitter Contest 

Early Period Score 
By Bender Margin 
Of Juniors' Victory 

On Saturday morning the league- 
leading senior touch football team 
went down in defeat at the hands of 
a well-balanced junior squad. Scoring 
on a long thrust on the second play 
of the game when Bender managed 
to snare the pigskin out of the arms 
of Umberger and Baier, the juniors 
started their quest of the intra-mural 
athletic trophy by a scant 6 to vic- 
tory. Following this score the seniors 
tightened and played the victors on 
even terms throughout the game, but 
were unable to score themselves in 
the interim. 

As the score indicates, the two 
teams were well-matched and neither 
team was able to muster enough 
strength to carry out a sustained of- 
fensive drive after the initial tally 
e arly in the opening period. The clos- 
est the seniors came to touchdown 
land was late in the last period when 
a series of short passes brought them 
within scoring distance only to lose 
ne ball on downs. From this point 
tn e juniors were content to set back 
an d protect their lead. 

Danny Seiverling did most of the 
Passing f or the victors with Bill Ben- 
°-er and Jack Moller on the receiving 
en d. On running plays, the juniors 
jamed considerable ground with Mun- 

ay s fine blocking for ball-carrier 

ob Grimm. For the seniors Carl 

ernpsey's passing and running as 
as Thomas' passing in the final 
garter were the main features of the 
^ ni0r offense with Smith and Good- 

an taking defensive honors. 

punt, and Herman, who played an ex- 
cellent game at tackle, recovered the 
ball on Moravian's 22 yard line. 
Vaughn got four yards through cen- 
ter as the quarter ended. After chang- 
ing positions on the field, the Dutch- 
men resumed their goalward trek. 
Kress gained five yards on two at- 
tempts. On the last down he tossed a 
pass to Tony Rozman for a first down 
on the Greyhounds' two yard line. 
Schillo gained a yard over guard and 
then Sammy Vaughn plunged over 
the opposite side for a touchdown. 
Tony Rozman booted his first extra 
point of the season making the score 

After that Moravian started throw- 
ing passes, but they were of no avail, 
first, because the L. V. C.'s defense 
tightened up, and second, a heavy 
fog started to settle over the field, 
making it quite impossible to see the 
ball. Kress intercepted a pass and 
ran it back 12 yards when the game' 

The score indicates a bitterly 
fought battle, which is exactly what 
it was, but there seemed to be little 
uncertainty that the Dutchmen would 
not win. It was a fairly even match 
with the L. V. Collegians holding the 
upper hand in yards gained and first 
downs. On the defense, Lebanon Val- 
ley's forward wall was impregnable. 
With Bulota, Herman, Bosnyak, and 
Frey playing an air-tight game in 
the line, and with Belmer and Vaughn 
backing up the line as they had not 
done previously, the Moravian offense 
could not click. Kress, Kuhn, and 
Vaughn played outstanding offensive 
ball with Kress, perhaps, showing the 
best ball carrying ability of the con-

Valleyites Prepare 
For Hartwick Rival 

Lebanon Valley's 1938 edition of 
stream-lined football in the form of 
one of the snappiest Blue and White 
squads for several seasons will engage 
Hartwick College of Oneonta, New 
York, in the first contest before local 
fans at Annville this Saturday. Hart- 
wick, nicknamed the Iroquois War- 
riors, is reputed to have been rising 
in the small college grid situation for 
several years. 

Under the tutelage of head coach 
Glenn Johnson, the Warriors finished 
last year's football season in a blaze 
of glory, peeling off three successive 
wins against Norwich, Connecticut 
Teachers and the New York Aggies, 
after starting the season in a slow 
style by losing three straight and 
tying one opponent. This season's 
record shows Hartwick with one vic- 
tory and two defeats since they lost 
to Alfred 18-6 and Middlebury 8-6 and 
won last week from Thiel 13-0.

The Hyperboreans 

By Panopten 

This week's column is dedicated to 
the pedants who objected to the fre- 
quenting of the men's day-student 
room by Aurora, goddess of the dawn. 
Aurora has been successfully put to 
flight. (After all, a Christian institu- 
tion is a Christian institution). Pan- 
optes plans to linger until the Lite 
Work Recruits drive the pagan away. 

Annually the day-students' room 
becomes the scene of a kind of Boy 
Scouts' Court of Honor, where upper- 
classmen attempt to preserve for pos- 
terity, in the recesses of the Fresh- 
men's crania, the songs and yells that 
they themselves have forgotten. By 
taking as much license as the anti- 
hazing regulations permit, they put 
into the hearts of the Frosh a certain 
reverence for social superiors and in- 
to their minds certain facts about 
whales in the ocean. Last Friday 
members of the lowest class on cam- 
pus assembled in the august presence 
of Raymond Frey and J. Warren En- 
gle, who proceeded to find out how 
well the underlings knew "the loco- 
motive" and the Alma Mater. 

Freshmen were much impressed, 
Panoptes is sure, when Frey occa- 
sionally thundered, "Wipe that smile 
off your faces," and then gave himseli 
up to uncontrollable mirth. Engle's 
dignified demeanor must also have 
terrified Gittlen, Jacoby, Hartman, 
and the rest of the fearful first-yeai 

The vigorous movements of Johi. 
Swope brought clamorous expressions 
of approval, as the young man, hav- 
ing been duly questioned about his 
political affiliation, enthusiastically 
demonstrated his cheer-leading abii 
ity. (He made Stepin Fetchit look 
like a hustler). Punsters were great 
ly inspired when one Horst, having 
been asked his name, replied without 
enunciating distinctly, "Horst, sirs. 

The climax of the occasion camt 
when Gittlen was unable to satisr> 
his examiners that he knew his songs 
and he was sentenced to a week o 
errand-running. But Gittlen took this 
treatment as he had taken a request 
for the name he received at baptism— 
in the friendly spirit in which it was 
given, and he didn't grumble much 
Panoptes believes Gittlen is a Stoic 

Immediately before the solemn cere- 
mony just described we heard Hart 
man and several other Frosh prac- 
ticing their songs in a most unortho- 
dox manner. Jitterbugs infesting the

A profound knowledge of the psy- 
chology of professors was shown by 
Wert one day last week. Knowing 
that professors are hot when students 
are cold and cold when students are 
hot, and also having observed that 
they want shades up when students 
want them down and shades down 
when students want them up, Wert 
has learned to make sure of his com- 
fort before the professor enters the 
classroom. He adjusts the heat and 
shades precisely to the opposites of 
his tastes and waits for the professor 
who is never satisfied with the state 
of things as found, to bring condi 
tions to the young psychologist's own

At Hike And Roast 

The International Relations Club 
held a hike and doggie rcast Tuesday 
evening, October 11, at a picnic grove 
north of Annville. The hike was in 
charge of John Miller, president of 
the club and Jane Ehrhart, secretary. 
After the roast Moller welcomed the 
old members and prospects. A short 
~eview of current events in the nature 
of a news broadcast from focal points 
was in charge of Jane Ehrhart. She 
was assisted by Jeannette Kalbach. 
Evelyn Ware, Joe Thomas, Carl Ehr- 
hart, Solomon Caulker, William Scher- 
fel, Arthur Evelev, John Lynch, Jac\ 
Ness, and John Moller. Joe Thomas 
then explained the purpose of the 
club and its various activities. The 
group of 24 was chaperoned by Mr. 
and Mrs. Canmean.

the Bible is of economic signficance. 

Then in an attempt to solve the 
three problems there are the three 
Roosevelt r's, relief, recovery, and re- 
form. Dr. Patterson mentioned some 
of the good and some of the bad points 
of this program. He continued by 
naming three possibilities for correct- 
ing inequalities, inflation with higher 
prices, deflation with lower' prices, or 
a stable price level. He said, "One of 
the chief threats to inflation' lies in 
an unbalanced budget." 

The three menaces of the United 
States, according to the speaker, are 
platitudes, panaceas, and politicians. 
There are also three parties, workers, 
capitalists, and the general public. 
During the first economic period big 
business held the controls, but during 
the second period the labor boss was 
on top. 

The economist concluded by stating 
the three all American ideals. Ac- 
cording to the Declaration of Inde- 
pendence, these are life, liberty, and 
the pursuit of happiness. According

to the United States Constitution they 
are life, liberty, and equality. Today 
they seem to be equality, liberty, and 
security. Dr. Patterson stated, "As I 
see it the problem today is the clash 
between liberty and security." He re- 
marked about how some people in 
Europe have apparently given up 
their liberty for security. Dr. Patter- 
son said in closing, "I should not 
argue for equality, but I should argue 
for equality of opportunity." 

Dr. Patterson's manner of speaking 
pleased the student body, and his 
clarity in discussing economic pro- 
blems made it possible for even those 
who are not well acquainted with eco- 
nomics to readily understand his

honors. Deval has woven into the play 
a delightful blend of comedy and tra- 
gedy, set in a sprightly dialogue, 
while through it all there runs an un- 
dercurrent qf pathos and patriotic 
sentiment. The play is in two acts 
of two scenes each. 

All of the members of the cast have 
had previous experience on the L. V. 
stage except two, those two being 
Miss Matteucci and Mr. Jenkins. Miss 
Saylor has been extensively engaged 
in dramatics activities during the 
past two years, while Mr. Tschop and 
Mr. Aungst have likewise had consid- 
erable experience in such affairs. 

The date for the presentation has 
been tentatively set for Thursday, 
November 10. Committees to handle 
ticket sales and other matters per- 
taining to the event will be appointed 
within the next few days. Staging 
will be in charge of Paul Horn, as-

W.A.A. Hike Attended 
By Members, Freshmen 

From the steps of North Hall at 
4:30 on Tuesday evening a groap ol 
warmly-clad girls — W. A. A. mem 
bers and new students — started on a 
hike to a campfire site on F.'nk's 
ranch. The games that were played 
after the group had assembled helpea 
to work up an appetite for the "big 
feed" which is always a main feature 
of the W. A. A. hikes. 

When the girls had fully appeased 
their hunger, they gathered around 
the campfire and participated in some 
good wholesome fun. The Freshmen 
contributed their share of the pro- 
gram by acting out charades. While 
the fire burned low, the girls sang 
songs and finally wended their way 
home under a clear starry sky. 

Archery Club Attracts 
Many W. A. A. Members 

In an effort to develop sports in 
which every girl may participate, the 
W. A. A. has recently organized an 
archery club. Those girls who ex- 
pressed a desire to join the club met 
with Betty Rutherford, October 11, to 
discuss plans. The girls who don't 
know how to arch will be grouped 
with those who have already arched 
and will practice together at a time 
convenient to the group. Following 
are the groups: Seiders, Cook, Smee; 
Davies, Cox, Koontz, Gayman, Graby, 
Matteucci; Meilly, Heminway, Oiler, 
Loser, Cross, Esbenshade; Parmer, 
Johnson, Hally; E. Rutherford, Lopes, 

By this method it is expected that 
each girl will develop her skill. Later 
I a tournament will be held.

Alumni Group 
plans For 

Varied Program Fills 
Returning Grads' Day 

This Saturday, October 22, will see 
the celebration of Lebanon Valley's 
Sixth Annual Homecoming Day. The 
arrangements for the day have been 
carried out through the Alumni Sec- 
retary, Prof. E. M. Balsbaugh, who 
will be in charge of the program for 
the first time, this year. Through his 
efforts all alumni have been notified 
of Homecoming Day and urged to pay 
a visit to their Alma Mater. 

Although the day will open with 
the fall meeing of the Board of Trus- 
tees and the annual sophomore-fresh- 
man tug-of-war, the main feature of 
the celebration will be the homecom- 
ing football game. St. Joseph's Col- 
lege of Philadelphia will be met by 
the Flying Dutchmen in this year's en- 
counter, and a hard-fought contest is 
anticipated. St. Joseph is undefeated 
thus far this season in four starts, 
while Lebanon Valley has won two 
out of three, the last of which was a 
field-day against Hartwick last Satur- 
day. In last year's Homecoming Day 
game P. M. C. was met and conquered 
to the tune of 3-0, the score coming 
on Tony Rozman's 30-yard field goal 
in the first period. 

The customary pep meeting for the 
alumni, in order to stir up enthusiasm 
for the game, will be held in the 
chapel at 10:30 a. m. and is the first 
official attraction for the visiting 
alumni and friends. Cheers and col-

The test this year was held in the

Girls Hockey Team Faces 
Alumnae In Homecoming 

As part of the program for Home- 
coming Day the hockey team will play 
the alumnae. This will be the first time 
that the alumnae have come back to 
the campus to play a scheduled hockey 
game. They are expected to give the 
team plenty of competition. Some of 
the girls who are expected back are — 
Ernestine Jagnesak, Gail Spangler, 
Catherine Mills, Eleanor Lynch, Anna 
Orth, Barbara Sloane, Lucille Haw- 
thorne, Wanda Price, Ethel Wilt, and 
Hazel March. Every one is looking 
forward to this game as it will pro- 
vide not only the fun of playing with 
the old girls but also the keen rivalry. 
The game is scheduled to start at ten- 

Recruits To Drop 
Deputation Work 

Last Thursday evening the Life 
Work Recruits met in North Hall 
parlor for a business meeting. The 
meeting was in charge of the presi- 
dent, Paul Horn. Mr. Horn led in the 
opening prayer. The officers of the 
organization were introduced to the 
new students who were present. The 
officers are Thomas Guinivan — Vice 
President; Edith Metzgar — Secretary- 
Treasurer; Jane Ehrhart — Pianist; 
and John Ness — Deputation Chair- 
man. The aim of the organization was 
clearly explained by the president. 
The regular time of the meeting will 
remain the same, Thursday evening. 

Dr. and Mrs. Wilt extended an in- 
vitation for the Life Work Recruits 
to attend an evening of fellowship at 
their home this Friday evening, Oc- 
tober 21. If there should be a pep 
meeting scheduled for that time, the 
fellowship will be held immediately 
afterwards. Remarks and comments 
were presented by several of the 
transfer students. 

After considerable discussion it was 
moved and passed that deputation 
work should be abandoned due to the 
difficulty of securing transportation. 
A letter has been sent to the admin- 
istration informing them of the action 
and announcing that the deputation 
work will be resumed gladly if the 
college will assume the responsibility 
of transportation. The meeting was 
then adjourned. 

Welcome Message To Homecomers 


Home Coming Day is at hand with all the autumnal beauty char- 
acteristic of the famed Lebanon Valley. Next Saturday, October 22nd 
is the time. Your new Secretary expects a revived interest in this occa- 
sion on the part of all Alumni and former students who are within 
reach of the College. Your presence is needed at the "pep" meeting 
in the Chapel at 10:30 A. M. Your suggestions as to the type of pro- 
gram desired for future Home Coming Days will be gladly received at 
this meeting. An an innovation this year a free lunch will be served

lished in the foyer of the Conservatory building until twelve-thirty. 
After that hour registrations may be made at the Football Field. 

The Football game with St. Joseph's College will be a hard fought 
contest. The two bands in resplendent uniforms and thoroughly drilled 
will add spectacular interest to the game setting. You cannot afford to 
miss this gala occasion. At six o'clock the Alumni dinner will be ser- 
ved in North Hall. A nominal charge of forty cents per plate has been 
set for this dinner. Following the dinner the Dramatic Club of the 
College will entertain you in the College Chapel.

W. & B. To Present 
Maker Of Dreams 

At seven p. m. on Saturday night 
the Wig and Buckle will presents its 
second annual Home-Coming perform- 
ance, the play being a one-a' fantasy 
with music called the Maker of 
Dreams. It was written by Oliphant 

The production has been directed 
by Lloyd Beamesderfer, who, in a re- 
cent interview, stated that he has 
every confidence in his cast, and there- 
fore sees no reason why the play 
should fail to be a hit. The cast se- 
lected are as follows: Pierrot, John 
Oliver; Pierrette, Flota Trout; the 
Maker of Dreams, Wm. F. Clark. The 
accompaniment will be played by An- 
ita Patschke. 

The Maker of Dreams is the sort of 
piece that is very unusual in the mod- 
ern theatre, and therefore it offers 
certain problems that can safely be 
ignored or eliminated in more ordi- 
nary vehicles. The whole action takes 
place in a gay, dream world that nev- 
er was, but ought to be. It is, in oth- 
er words, a bit of make-believe of so 
happy a character that, when the 
curtain has fallen, one is a little sad 
to realize that, after all, it was only 
a play. 

Chemistry Group 
To Start Sessions 

The first bimonthly meeting of the 
Chemistry Club will be held in the 
chemistry lecture room of the Admin- 
istration Building next Tuesday eve- 
ning, October 25, at 7:30 o'clock. 
These meetings which will be held 
hereafter on the first and third Tues- 
days of each month are open to all 
interested persons. Freshmen students 
who are chemistry majors are espec- 
ially invited to attend, for participa- 
tion in the club's activities has come 
to be considered as part of the chem- 
istry curriculum. 

For the first meeting arrangements 
are being made to secure several mo- 
tion picture films of general interest, 
the subject matter of which will range 
from sulphur to oil refining. In the 
event that the desired films can not 
be obtained in time, student reports 
on contemporary chemistry topics and 
a spectroscope demonstration have 
been prepared. 

Plans are now being laid for a num- 
ber of trips throughout the year to 
nearby industrial and commercial es- 
tablishments. These trips are design- 
ed to awaken an appreciation of mod- 
ern science and to rub some part of 
the gloss of unreality from textbook 

r, L" Club Plans Homecoming Dance 

As the highlight and climax of the 
Homecoming celebration the "L" Club 
will hold the first of its annual dances 
in the Annville High School gymnas- 
ium Saturday, October 22, at eight- 
fifteen o'clock. 

Due to the efforts of President Bu- 
lota and his committeemen this prom- 
ises to be the most outstanding dance 
as yet held this season, and certainly 
one of the largest "L" Club Dances 
in the history of the organization. A 
record number of alumni are expected 
to be present on the campus over the 
week end, and the majority of these 
will be present at the dance. 

The orchestra committee has inter- 
viewed several well-known orchestra 
leaders and promises excellent music 

for the evening. The gymnasium will 
be decorated in keeping with the spir- 
it of autumn and Hallowe'en. 

The chaperones will be Professor 
and Mrs. Carmean, Dr. and Mrs. 
Stokes, and Mr. and Mrs. E. M. Me- 

President Bulota has appointed the 
following committee: Orchestra com- 
mitee — chairman, Coda Sponaugle, 
Daniel Seiverling, August Herman; 
decoration committee — George Katch- 
mer, chairman, Charles Belmer, Don- 
ald Ludwig, and Robert Brown; pro- 
grams — Christian Walk, chairman, 
Roy Weidman, and Fred Bosnyak; 
ticket collector — Frank Lennon. The 
price of admission is one dollar stag 
or drag. 

Valley Eleven 
Hits Hartwick 
As Dads Watch 

Dutchmen Hold Field Day 
As Warriors Bow 53-0 

Amassing the unbelievable total of 
53 points, Lebanon Valley College's 
Flying Dutchmen romped to an easy 
victory over Hartwick College, of 
Oneonta, New York. Fumbling away 
their lone opportunity, the New 
Yorkers failed to cross the Valley's 
goal line. 

The Dads who witnessed the fray 
were treated to an exhausting and 
boring barrage oi 1 points, whereby 
the Dutchmen gained the distinction 
of scoring the second highest total in 
the East. Coach Frock gave every- 
body on the bench an opportunity to 
gain some experience from real game 
competition. After the varsity had 
scored two touchdowns, the subs 
formed a perpetual parade from the 
bench to the playing field. Amazing 
as it may seem, the scrubs dug in 
and pushed Hartwick all around the 
field and scored in every period. 

Three plays after the kick-off, Ed 
Kress practically waltzed over the 
goal line after trotting about 25 
yards. Kress had passed to Walk on 
the preceding play to put the ball in 
position for Kress' run. Walk missed 
the extra point. The substitutes

The registration report for the 
week ending October 15, reveals that 
the number of students studying at 
Lebanon Valley College and Conser- 
vatory of Music this year has reached 
the net-total of 547. In this report 
are included full-time and part-time 
students in the liberal arts and science 
courses and conservatory of music, 
and extension course students. Com- 
pared with last year's report of 
October 16, an increase of over 7.6% 
s noted. Last year, however, the en- 
rollment had dropped from a 515 
total of October 17 of the previous 
year (1936) to 508 (1937). The great- 
est increase is found in the number of 
part-time students, with 48 this year 
^o 33 in 1937. 

The men students top the women 
students with a total of 299 to 248. 
In the conservatory studies the women 
outnumber the men 106 to 55. The 
men, however, capture the high mark 
in the liberal arts and science courses 
234 to 118. Totals in the liberal arts 
and science students and conservatory 
students are respectively 352 and 161. 

In a comparison of dormitory and 
day students, it is found that the 
latter group totals more than * the 
former, 331 to 216. There are 118 men 
and 98 women in the dormitories. The 
day students number 181 men and 150 

Of full-time students there are 399, 
of part-time 114, and of extension 66. 
Duplicates in the evening classes in 
the extension courses, and in the con- 
servatory of music deduct from the 
grand-total 579, making the net-total 
registration 547.

Sad is the tale of the forgotten 
man. His is a story of neglect and 
disregard. Whether in the realm of 
personal or of social and economic 
life, he is to be pitied. When the de- 
velopment of personality depends so 
much on social contacts, it js tragic 
to be forgotten, either by one's 
friends or one's government. Justice, 
and often more than justice, is ren- 
dered to the prominent man, but to 
the forgotten man . . . well, he con- 
tinues to be forgotten. 

But the adjective "forgotten" is not 
only applicable to men, but also to 
organizations. And the chief forgot- 
ten organization on the campus of 
Lebanon Valley College seems to be 
that of the Life Work Recruits. Does 
it not seem more than passing strange 
that in this "Christian institution" 
the organization engaged most strict- 
ly in Christian religious work be sup- 
ported in no way by the administra- 
tion except orally? Although the lat- 
ter type is quite frequently given, it 
contributes little toward the practi- 
cal problems of carrying on the work. 

The Recimit organization is one of 
the most active on the campus, if not 
the most active. Its activity consists 
in sending out deputations to conduct 
services in any church desiring it. 
Last year Deputations Chairman Paul 
Horn reported 64 churches visited, 93 
services conducted, 25 college stud- 
ents and 32 Conservatory students 
taking part, and a total mileage cov- 
ered of 3,980 miles! 

It truly makes a fine-appearing and 
a fine-sounding report to which to re- 
fer when advertising the college, or 
to report to an annual conference. 
But what is not mentioned is that this 
was done by a "forgotten" and un- 
supported organization. What is not 
mentioned is the fact that the college 
reaped the rewards of the advertise- 
ment without either furnishing or 
sowing the seed. And it is an adver- 
tisement, for an estimated ten thou- 
sand people attended the services con 
ducted by the Recruits, many of 
whom know of the existence of Leba 
non Valley College only through this 
association. It is just as valuable in 
this respect as is the football team, 
Band, Glee Club, or any other organ 
ization. True, it furnishes a wealth 
of practical experience to its mem 
bers, but at what price? 

For the last several years the prob- 
lem of securing transportation has 
been an ever increasingly difficult one, 
and the ebb-tide has been reached this 
year. One deputation a Sunday can 
be handled, most of the time, but as 

far as seven or eight are concerned 
the problem is more complex, in fact, 
a bit too complex. Thus, action has 
been taken by the Recruit organiza- 
tion to the effect that the deputation 
work shall be discontinued until such 
a time that it can be taken up on a 
more sure basis. This merits deep 

It is not policy to favor one organ 
ization on campus above another, and 
yet it is not a better policy to discri- 
minate against one organization. The 
policy of lavish "hand-outs" is also 
to be deplored, it is being practiced 
too much in politics and economics 
as it is. Nevertheless, if the College 
sxpects deputation work to be con- 
tinued, and it surely does, it must 
end its support, even if it amounts 
to a slight cut in other appropria- 
tions. The several organizations can 
stand it. Above all, something more 
tangible is required than promises. 
They have been given before. 

L. V. Stage | 

With the approach of the fall-win- 
der dramatic season, the local Thes- 
pians are exhibiting such a show of 
activity as to promise a wide variety 
of enjoyment for campus theatre-go- 
ers. Just now three plays are in pro- 
duction, with a fourth scheduled to 
begin in a week or two. 


Biggest and most important, of 
course, of the three is "Tovarich,'' 
Wig and Buckle extravaganza. Then 
there is "The Maker of Dreams," a 
one-acter, also W. & B. -sponsored, 
which is slated for Homecoming. And 
last but not least, another one-act 
thing called "The New Bride" which 
Philo and Clio are getting tuned for 
their joint session on Oct. 29th. 

Rehearsals for "Tovarich" are com- 
ing along remarkably well. A whiz- 
bang cast of actors, fortified by juicy 
roles in a smart, humorous play — 
well, it's hard to see how this one can 
miss. While learning of lines has not 
gone very far as yet, the cast is rar- 
in' to go and gives every evidence of 
giving it everything they've got. 

"Dutch" Hackman has been wowing 
onlookers at practice thus far with 
his screamingly funny reading of his 
lines. The other principals have 
caught the mood in fine fashion and 
are keeping up to the pace; and if 
the improvement from now until cur- 
tain time is in proportion to what 
may usually be expected, "Tovarich" 
should be one for the book. 


Lloyd Beamesderfer is directing 
"The Maker of Dreams" for Home- 
coming Day evening. Likewise han- 
dicapped by a late start, the cast of 
three is nevertheless coming along 
fast. The play itself is a light, airy 
thing which, if properly done, will 
provide a charming half-hour's en- 
tertainment. Miss Trout, in company 
with Messrs. Clark and Oliver — the 
latter, by the way, is another new- 
comer to local theatricals — can safely 
be counted on for a creditable job. 

A novel feature of this play will be 
the musical score which goes with it. 
Miss Anita Patschke will do the hon- 
ors — which in itself is ample assur- 
ance of an enjoyable evening, 

Clio and Philo, meanwhile, have en- 
trusted the directorial mantle for 
"The New Bride" to the shoulders of 
Ben Goodman. That gentleman re- 
ports that the cast is fulfilling his 
highest expectations in regard to 
such matters as feeling for lines, fit- 
ting into parts, etc., and says further 
that in the two weeks yet remaining 
before the presentation of the play, 
his proteges will have achieved a high 
degree of perfection. 





By Proboscis 
Hi, Mame! Hi, Butcn! Time for an- 
other fat session, so here we go again. 

* * * 

A young pre-med student is Baier, 
With medical zeal he's on fire; 
But — while watching a vet 
Cut open a pet 

He passed out — now Baier's for hire. 
Well, anyway, you know what we're 
getting at. 

* * * 

Poor oF Proboscis (and we WON'T 
have you calling him "Snoot ') is go- 
ing to depart from precedent and ven- 
ture a prediction as to the outcome of 
the Tug on Saturday. Maybe we'll 
iose our shirt, but our guess is the 
freshmen in three tugs. Whether 
we're right or whether we're wrong, 
we'll probably hear plenty on this 

* * * 

Of course, the Five-Star Final will 
be the game with St. Joe in the P. M. 
After that horse-race with Hartwick, 
Blue and White hopes for a win over 
the Hawks have taken a turn for the 
better. There's nothing like a foot- 
ball victory to complete a perfect day 
so GO, VALLEY!! 

* * * 

As a charter member of Screwball 
Corner, Dean Aungst earned himself 
at lea_t a vice-presidency in that slug 
nutty outfit in connection with the re- 
cent Wig and Buckle tryouts. It seems 
that for three days before casting took 
place, Dean greeted everyone he met 
with the words, "Just call me Mikail." 
(We had quite a struggle with our- 
selves over the advisability of print- 
ing this, but it was too good to keep). 

* * * 

Far be it from us to bring any dirt 
to the surface, but informed political 
circles on the campus are agog with 
amazement and some indignation over 
the unheard-of tactics of one of our 
society bigwigs. All of which, we 
think, justifies us in repeating to the 
freshmen our advice of last week: Go 
slow and easy. 

* * * 

After hearing of the horrifying ex- 
perience which befell South Haller 
Gladys Parmer on Sunday night, 
we're taking no chances; we're get- 
ting into the habit of looking under 
the bed every night before retiring. 
For once we're glad we learned to dry 
clothes on the window sill, because our 
method eliminates the possibility of 
having a treacherous clothesline turn 
"i us and pull a choking act. 

Which reminds us that "Man's man" 
Smith, of the Lykens Smiths, has of 
late been going in for the Outdoor 
Life in a big way. How are you at 

training a pointer, Smitty? 

# * # 

The tennis courts are being made 
use of quite a bit these days. Among 
those we see quite often are Carl 
Dempsey and Dick Bell; while numer- 
ous comments are heard anent the 
prowess of one Alice Reed, who, they 
say, reminds one of the former Helen 

Wills a her Moodiest (ouch!) 

# * * 

Just so this Indian summer weath- 
er continues until after Homecoming 
Day. The campus weather prophets 
-are predicting rain any day now. The 

# * # 

Faint repercussions of that quaint 
custom called "Open House" are still 
echoing over the campus. Somebody 
done Ruth Rohrer wrong — at least we 
never took kindly to having our bed 

But the lowest trick of all — even 
though she was in a bathing suit — 
came when that burly footballer from 
Shamokin appropriated Katie Zwal 
ly's picture. Occupants of the Men's 
Dorm are busily engaged trying all 
pictures of sweeties, etc. to the fix 
tures, in preparation for the girl's 
chance to retaliate— which comes, we 
have heard, on the 30th. Hey, fella, 
got any "bull rope"? ? ? 

# * # 

Every so often we are bothered by 
a constantly recurring fad which, just 
as we heave sighs of relief over its 
latest retirement from public favor 
pops up again in all its repulsiveness 
to haunt us. All this by way of let- 
ting out the glad tidings that the mus- 
tache craze is here again. Goodman 
has a lovely blond wisp which, fortu 
nately, is well-nigh invisible to the 
naked eye; Gus Maury and one or two 
others have "snivvies" on the way; 
but — and it pains us to say this — 
some of the boys have become dis- 
couraged to the point of withdrawing 
from the race. Don't mind us — we're 
just jealous. 

# * * 

Along with several others, we put 
in a pop-eyed half-hour the other P 
M. watching two would-be fencers 
dancing menacingly back and forth 
on the grass in back of the Ad Build 
ing. It did our hearts good to see the 
days of D'Artagnan brought to life 
once more — maybe now we'll find out 
"riposte" means. Go to it, boys 
touche! ! 


Lifting Book Lid< 

Tsk, Tsk. Only my third column, 
and I am going to recommend some 
new books I haven't read. But the 
first chance I get, I'm gonna sit me 
down with Victor Small's / Know 
Three Thousand Lunatics. Doctor for 
six years in an insane asylum, Small 
tells of his experiences, some hilari- 
ous, some horrible. He gives case his- 
tories of victims of many types of 
insanity. One chapter that struck me 
as interesting is The Goddess That 
Never Smiles. You've all read stories 
of murderers who were acquitted be- 
cause of insanity. Some of them, ac- 
cording to Dr. Small, were perfectly 
sane. Others, however, have been con- 
demned to the electric chair who 
should have been sent to an asylum.

Dry Guillotine, by Rene Belbenoi*, 
is a true story of life on Devil's Is- 
land, the French penal colony. It is a 
best seller, and small wonder. One is 
shocked, dreadfully, at the inhuman- 
ity of the treatment a convict re- 
ceives. Though not short, this book 
will hold your interest every second.

A book doesn't have to be new to 
be good. One that has stood the test 
of time is The Choir Invisible, by 
James Lane Allen. It's been a long 
time since I read it, but the story is 
beautiful and some passages linger in 
the memory for years. It's one of 
those really worthwhile novels, and 
you'll never regret the time spent in 
reading it. Call No. F AI53c. 

The new American has just 

arrived. There is one article which 
immediately captures the fancy. It is 
Plenty of Room in Heaven, by Gustav 
Eckstein. I read it in perhaps 5 min- 
utes, but I have a feeling I won't for 
get it in 5 years. It deals mostly with 
cockroaches. "Cockroaches-" you say 
— "what is so fascinating about cock 
roaches?" Well, I won't tell. Read 
and be fascinated too. 

Ye ed told me to put some alumni 
appeal in this, I don't know how, but 
maybe a predecessor will read this 
and think with joy (?) of his jour- 
nalistic endeavors.

October 17, 1938 

Editor: La Vie Collegienne. 

The Kalozetean Literary Society 
takes this means thanking the per- 
son or persons who so considerately 
returned the tenor saxophone parts 
which disappeared from the gymna- 
sium last Saturday night while the 
Kalo-Delphian joint-session was in 
progress in Kalo Hall. 

The loss caused the society much 
concern, not only since the music was 
part of a private library, but because 
of a few changes in the personnel of 
the orchestra which have been made 
for the forthcoming engagement by 
the "L" Club. It wa s feared that the 
new members may not have been able 
to play just as well without the music 
as the Kalo-Collegians did at the joint 

So once more to the one who saved 
Kalo an estimated bill of fifty dollars, 
we say many thanks.

Athletic Association Gives 
Statement Of Policy 

L. V. C. Seeks Co-Operation of Alumni and Friends 

Lebanon Valley's Athletic Association acknowledges the support of 
her alumni and friends who have helped keep the college in the front 
ranks of athletic competition. The degree of success attained in this 
Held is largely due to tneir patronage. Respect for tnis generosity sug- 
gests a statement of plans and policies. 

After many years of scheuunng games with large institutions, in 
which our lighter teams were usually crushed, because these institutions 
paid large guarantees in order to get practice victims to prepare them 
for bigger contests, these "fodder games" have been abandoned this 
year. They were found undesirable from every angle except that of fi- 
nancial return. If, by supreme effort and the expense of numerous in- 
juries, a game was won or closely contested occasionally, we were drop- 
ped from future schedules under circumstances that suggested that as a 
small college we over-emphasized or commercialized atnietics and were 
undesirable opponents. 'Ihe only glory in case of humiliating defeat 
and an extended casualty list was a substantial money guarantee that 
made it possible to finance the season with greater ease. Morale of 
spirited boys battling against unequal odds both in weight and exper- 
ience was certain to be lowered by the psychology of defeat for the re- 
mainder of the season when teams in our class were encountered. In 
fairness to the fine young men on our teams who deserve better treat- 
ment, we are glad to attempt a change in policy and confine our sched- 
ules to teams nearer our class. This change involves the athletic coun- 
cil with the immediate problem of providing funds to cover the finan- 
cial deficit incident to the change. 

We have decided that no sound enterprise can function on charity as 
a foundation, hence we address you with this appeal — GIVE US PAT- 

The 1939-1940 schedules are now in the making. The adoption of 
the above stated policy depends largely upon the cooperation and sup- 
port of alumni and friends. Assured attendance would make it pos- 
sible to schedule more games locally with more desirable opponents. 

In an effort to carry out the suggested policy and at the same time 
meet financial problems, Lebanon Valley College Athletic Association 
appointed a committee to formulate ways and means of converting the 
idea into a reality. 

The committee finds that solution to the problem lies in patronage 
at home games. Lebanon Valley College is the only collegiate institu- 
tion in its territory. Its supporters and friends are a loyal and enthus- 
iastic lot, and can make intercollegiate competition a matter of greater 
community pride and interest. From a Civic standpoint alone the col- 
lege authorities believe the project merits hearty support from service 
clubs and organizations. We invite a closer relationship between com- 
munity and college and trust the movement may be the means of build- 
ing closer social solidarity. 

The plan is briefly this: ADEQUATE ATTENDANCE AT ALL 
GAMES. To assure this we suggest a PATRON'S SEASON TICKET 
admitting either the subscriber or bearer to a reserved section at ALL 
HOME ATHLETIC CONTESTS. In recognition of their support we 
propose to publish a PATRON'S LIST in all official athletic programs. 
The suggested price of the tickets is five dollars ($5.00) a year. Each 
ticket will be good for all home games in football, basketball, and 
baseball and will be transferable. The sale of 1,000 tickets will assure 
enthusiastic attendance, financial security, and spirited competition, 
and Lebanon Valley College athletics will then have attained its deser- 
ved position in community civic life. 

This is the plan — the success depends upon cooperation of alumni 
and friends. The Athletic Association solicits your cooperation— Lebanon 
Valley athletic teams need your support!

Drop 2 At S.S.T.C 

The hockey teams of Lebanon Val- 
ley played the teams of the Shippens- 
burg State Teachers College on Sat- 
urday, October 15, at Shippensburg. 
The first game was played by the 
Honor Teams of both schools. Sev- 
eral defects in the playing of our girls 
were brought to light, in this game, 
which was played as a preliminary 
test game. Although the girls worked 
iard, Shippensburg managed to win 
the game 5-1. The ljne-up was as fol-

Much valuable experience was gained 
by both teams, for many of the girls 
were playing their first game. Ship-

Valley Eleven Hits 
Hartwick As Dads Watch 

Juniors Continue 
Unbeaten Streak 
In Touch Football 

The Junior class continued its 
undefeated streak in touchfootball 
narrowly winning over the sopho- 
mores last Saturday morning. The 
final score was 6-0. 

The upperclassmen made their 
touchdown in the early minutes of the 
game, and although they threatened 
several times later in the game, they 
didn't have the "push" to take the 
ball over the stripe. At no time did 
the sophomores seriously threaten 
their opponents goal, the juniors 
tightening up as soon as they made 
their touchdown. 

It seems as if the juniors have 
found a Clint Frank-Larry Kelly com- 
bination in the persons of Bill Bender 
and Danny Seiverling. This combin- 
ation was responsible for the touch- 
down in this game, and if you remem- 
ber, the same two were responsible 
for the touchdown that, gave them a 
win over the seniors last week. Bob 
Wright, a transfer student from Le- 
high, turned in a good steady perfor- 
mance for the sophomores, and 
worried the juniors throughout the 
game by intercepting a number of 
their passes. 

There was no "razzle-dazzle" pass- 
ing and running as is typical of most 
touch-football games. After their 
touchdown, the juniors coasted 
through the rest of the game. 

(Continued from Page 1) 

then resumed the varsity's operations 
and pushed across another score be- 
fore the half ended. The third touch- 
down came as a result of some nice 
running by Ciamillo and Smith, with 
Smith tallying after a 15 yard run. 
Ciamillo bucked across the extra 
point making the score at half 19-0 
in favor of L. V. C. 

The third quarter brought the sur- 
prise of the afternoon when Fresh- 
man Smith showed his heels to the 
Hartwick lads by running about 30 
yards to Hartwick's ten, from where 
he tossed a lateral to Coon who jogged 
across for a score. Walk converted 
the extra point. By blocking a punt 
on Hartwick's 25 yard stripe, the 
stage was set for another score, and 
score the Dutchmen did when Tony 
Rozman, who had just entered the 
tussle, set sail on a 25 yard sprint 
across Hartwick's goal. His try for 
the extra point was good. 

The Flying Dutchmen really flew 
when they scored three touchdowns 
in the final period. Steve Kubisen 
scored on a pass from T. Rozman, 
Raymie Frey grabbed a long pass 
from Kress for the second score, and 
Don Staley tallied the final score 
when he picked up a blocked punt and 
ran 20 yards for a tally. Tony Roz- 
man converted two of the three extra 
points, the last one going under the 

Hartwick muffed its only opportu- 
nity to score, when Shuey recovered 
a fumble on the Valley's own two 
yard line. Kress punted out of dan- 
ger, thus depriving the Indians of 
their lone chance. 

On Saturday the Valley will enter- 
tain a powerful St. Joseph College 
team in the annual Homecoming

Green Blotter Members 
Read Letters At Session 

Last night at 7:30 the Green Blot- 
ter Club held its first regular meeting 
for this year at the home of Dr. 
Struble. Alice Richie, president of 
the club, presided. Most of the even- 
ing was spent in the reading of a 
round robin letter written this sum- 
mer by club members. Each of last 
year's members wrote in his own in- 
dividual style a letter describing his 
activities during the summer vacation 
and then sent all the letters he had 
received to the next person on the 
list. The letter was begun July 5 and 
reached the last person September 19.

Name Representatives 

The Freshman class held their 
first meeting in the new adminis- 
tration of President Joseph Carr. 
At that time George Smith and 
Ruth Long were elected as repre- 
sentatives to the Student-Faculty 
Council. Robert Dresel was chosen 
as freshman senator. He attended 
his first meeting of the Men's Sen- 
ate Tuesday night. 

St. Joseph Team 
Has Clean Record 

Fresh from their easy 53-0 triumph 
over a weak Hartwick team on Satur- 
day, the football representatives of 
L. V. C. will tackle the unbeaten and 
untied team of St. Joseph's College in 
Philadelphia. The game will be cele- 
brated as part of Homecoming Day 
for L. V. 

Coach Frock will probably make no 
changes in his excellent starting line- 
up which has remained fairly intact 
since the birth of the season. The 
standout work displayed by some of 
the here-to-fore untried on Saturday 
may give them a chance to see action 
this week. 

The visitors will present a well- 
balanced squad that is no pushover in 
any league. With decisive victories 
over West Chester, Mt. St. Mary's, 
C. C. N. Y., and Canisius, the Hawks 
can boast of four victories and no de- 
feats as compared with the two vic- 
tories and one defeat recorded by L. 
V. C. The Crimson and Gray goal 
line has been crossed but twice in this 
year's campaign. 

Out of the eight games played be- 
tween the two schools intermittently 
since 1916, Lebanon Valley has cap- 
tured six, while St. Joe's won but 

Henry J. (Heine) Miller, an Ail- 
American end at Penn in 1919, has 
competently coached the Hawks since 
1934. His assistant is Albert L. 
Kreuz, one-time All-American Penn 
back. One of the three Seniors on 
the squad is Captain Frank McLaugh- 
lin, the youngest captain in St. Joe's 
football history. He plays guard. The 
apparent scarcity of veterans is 
atoned for by the height and weight 
of the team. The average height is 
5' 11", and the average weight is 182 

The Hawks will probably line up 
with Guziewicz and Larkin at the ter- 
minals, Bobb and Kazlo manning the 
tackles, McAlarnen and Captain Mc- 
Laughlin holding down the guard 
posts, Harrison over the ball, Sanson 
calling signals, Seltzer and Laux at 
halfback, and Dollenberg at fullback. 

Seniors Defeat 
Yearlings 6-0, 
Take Second Place 

Dempsey to Silvers Aerial 
Proves Margin of Victory 

In a battle filled with heated argu- 
ments and flashes of personal anger, 
the senior touch-football team capi- 
talized on breaks in the last period to 
eke out a 6-0 win over the Frosh team. 
A series of short passes from Demp- 
sey to Silvers resulted in the game's 
only score and came after Smith 
broke through the yearlings' forward 
wall to smother Lease's attempted 
Punt. This was the first break in favor 
of the fourth-year men. The Frosh 
however intercepted a- Dempsey pass 
and immediately started an aerial 
barrage of long passes. After a suc- 
cessful gain on a deceptive pass from 
Hambright to Wieler, Dempsey inter- 
cepted a second attempt by that same 
combination and danced his way down 
the sideline to the ten yard marker 
where the lanky Lease caught him. 
The rapid thrusts to Silvers then up- 
set the freshman . 

The entire game was evenly con- 
tested with neither side showing much 
offensive drive. The seniors frequent- 
ly quick-kicked on first or second 
down to gain yardage on the fresh- 
men who constantly gambled on long 
passes for a desperate score. 

This win placed the seniors in sec- 
ond place in the league race follow- 
ing close on the heels of the league- 
leading juniors. 



The Hyperboreans 

By Panoptes 

From the women's day-students 
room comes a suggestion for improv- 
ing the Administration Building. The 
ladies find the appearance of the 
bulletin board repulsive and Panoptes 
shares their offended aesthetic sensi- 
bilities. Practical as well as artistic 
are these commuters, who would like 
to see appointed an N. Y. A. worker 
to take down daily the out-of-date 
notices. Perhaps, by doing this job 
efficiently, a worker could even win 
Dr. Stokes' approval of the N. Y. A. 

A prominent humorist from down 
the Valley says that he thinks Mathe- 
matics is cockeyed. "Half the answers 
are infinity; the other half, zero. And 
nobody knows what either of them 

Dorothy Wentling paid a nutty 
price for absent-mindedness one day 
last week. She was to go home with 
somebody who drives an Oldsmobile; 
seeing one parked on College Avenue, 
she put into it her lunch-bucket and 
a bag of nuts. Imagine her embar- 
rassment when later she discovered 
that she had picked out the wrong 
Oldsmobile, and somebody had de- 
parted with her bucket and the nuts. 

Basing his belief upon sounds 
rather than smell — he has grown ac- 
customed to the odors that infest the 
place— that the Men's day-student 
room had been invaded by swine, 
Panoptes investigated and found 
Harold Moody and Jakie Umberger 
merely practising the French nasals 
— 'in,' 'en,' 'an,' 'on,' and 'un.' 

We understand that Richard Moody 
has a voice adaptable to any occasion. 
He sings in a choir at Lebanon and 
is not only a celebrated tenor, but also 
a distinguished baritone. Maybe he 
will extend to all of us Hyperboreans 
a special invitation to come and hear 
him sing a soprano solo one of these 

When the women desired the co- 
operation of the men in arranging for 
a Halowe'en party, they found it pro- 
blematical how to negotiate with an 
unorganized body without any individ- 
uals officially authorized to act as re- 
presentatives. A mass-meeting was 
held on Monday, but no progress was 
made. Let us hope that by the time 
this appears in print, the men will 
have an efficient organization like the 
women's. Such a step might also 
prove the first toward securing the 
much-desired government independ- 
ent of the Senate. 

Typical chatter among day-studes 
in skirts: "Who's that guy that sits 
in front of you in history class?" 
"That's the Earthquake!" "Well, 
which one wears a green sweater?" 
"What's the name of the fellow with 
his hair cut like a convict's? Tall — 
not too tall. Rather heavy-set." Such 
questions for exactly 25 minutes 15 
seconds, then a really intelligent sug- 
gestion: "The faculty ought to oblige 
us by marching the football players 
in single file upon the platform." 
Finally, the climax of the conver- 
sation: "Why not have each player 
come down to the women's day-stu- 
dent room individually to make him- 
self known?"

lege yells will feature the program 
of the pep meeting. 

The other feature of the morning 
will be the renewal of the annual 
freshman-sophomore struggle on the 
banks of the Quittie. The unusually 
warm weather now prevailing might 
make a ducking in the Quittie less of 
an ordeal than is customary at 
this time of the year. Nevertheless, 
cold or not so cold, it will still be 
more or less of a disgrace for either 
class to be submerged. Last year's 
tug was more of a snap than a pull. 
The frosh were immersed twice in 
the short space of ten minutes, scarce- 
ly having time to shiver a bit from 
the first ducking before they received 
the second. Coach Curvin L. Thomp- 
son led the victorious sophs, while 
Raymond Smith got the traditional 
ducking given the losing coach.

a one act play.

Bruna Castagna Scores 
In Community Concert 

Many Lebanon Valley Music Lovers 
Attend Season's First Concert 
Contralto Opens Series 

Community concert goers were given a rare treat on Tuesday evening 
when Bruna Catagna, leading contralto of the Metropolitan Opera Company, 
opened the season's series of concerts in the new Lebanon High School audi- 

In the opinion of many this was one of the outstanding recitals ever to

Sophs Outpull Frosh 
In Annual Tug-of-War 

Fists Fly As Victors 
Even Score With Foes 

The men of '41 brought their bat- 
Ling, or perhaps tugging average up 
to .500 last Saturday when they pull- 
ed their freshmen brethren into the 
exceedingly wet Quittie in the annual 
tug-of-war between the two classes. 
Although dragged into the water last 
year in record time by the present 
juniors, the sophomores redeemed 
themselves in the eyes of their fellow- 
men this year and came through for 
. Coach "Tink" Silvers. Coach wasn't 
! around at the conclusion of hostilities, 
prudence and foresight bade other- 
wise, but he gets the credit for the 
win. But the unfortunate coach of 
the freshmen, Jack Moller, was 
around and as if to add injury to in- 
sult he was rudely pushed into the 
Quittie by a couple exaltant sophs. 
I The tug itself was a tame affair 
and devoid of interest. Both sides 
seemed reluctant, or unable, to keep

istic of a good tug. The frosh lay on

warm and charming personality. This 
attribute coupled with her appealing 
program and technical versatility 
served to make an exceptionally de- 
lightful evening. 

In all her renditions Miss Castagna 
put herself into the role she was por- 
traying with an astounding dramatic 

While the soloist was well received 
in all her selections, the Habanera 
from Carmen and her encore from 
the same opera climaxed the first part 
of the program in the ears of the lis- 
teners. This was possibly due to the 
familiarity of the compositions. 

Miss Castagna closed the evening's 
program with four delightful songs 
in English, using as encores "By the 
Bend of the River" and Tschaikow- 
ski's "None but the Lonely Heart."

Hawks Upset Before 
Homecoming Crowd 

Blue & White Aerial Thursts Wreck 
St. Joseph's Perfect Record, 
Frey, Sponaugle Score 

Unleashing an accurate and powerful passing attack early in the game, 
Lebanon Valley Flying Dutchmen bombarded the St. Joseph's Hawk, bring- 
ing him to earth for the first time this season. Taking the visitors entirely 
by surprise, the Blue and White scored in the first and last periods to send 
the large Homecoming Day crowd into ecstasy. The score, when the dust of 
battle had cleared away, was L. V. 
C— 13, St. Joe's— 7. 

St. Joe's kicked-off to L. V. C. The 
Dutchmen immediately began their 
aerial attack, but St. Joe's promptly 
intercepted a Blue and White heave 
to gain the ball at about midfield. The 
visitors then obligingly fumbled and 
L. V. C. alertly recovered. Filling the 
air with short, bulletlike heaves, the 
homesters marched to the enemy 
twenty-five yard stripe. The surprised 
Hawks called for time. Resuming 
play, the Frockmen struck immedi- 
ately on a beautifully executed for- 
ward-lateral that sent them into a 
never-relinquished lead. Kuhn bullet- 
passed to Grabusky who whirled a 
lateral to Sponaugle. The husky line 
man galloped the remaining distance 
to score. Walk failed to place-kick 
the extra point.

This composite pictorial review of the annual Homecoming weekend just past shows in the upper right the 
victorious Sophomores who gave the cocky Frosh a much needed bath in the icy Quittie on Saturday morning. In 
the lower right a bit of fast action in the girls' hockey game in which the undergrads whipped the aging alumnae. 
The big bad girl with the high stick is Louise Saylor, who is apparently more interested in somebody's head than 
in the white pellet. Those two love-birds on the left are Floda Trout and John Oliver, as Pierrette and Pierrot, in 
"Maker of Dreams," W. & B.'s one-acter.

Wig & Buckle Fantasy 
Wins Wide Approval 

By Louise Saylor 
The Maker of Dreams by Oliphant 
Down, presented by the Wig and 
Buckle Club on Homecoming evening, 
was a pleasant surprise to the large 
audience that attended. Quite differ- 
ent from anything seen on the L. V. C. 
stage in a long time, the fantasy earn- 
ed all the applause it received. 

John Oliver, a newcomer 1 
Lebanon Valley, is a real find. His 
portrayal of Pierrot was very com- 
mendable. After his first few lines 
he found himself very definitely and 
was completely at ease for the rest 
of the play. Probably he surprised 
the audience most by his pleasant 

Pierrette as interpreted by Floda 
Trout was a personification of grace. 
With every movement she was the 
dancer, Pierrette. The expression 
of her love for Pierrot was very con- 
vincing. To Miss Trout belongs a 
large part of the credit for the suc- 
cess of the Maker of Dreams.

Junior Class Selects 
Barries "Dear Brutus' 

The junior class, through a com- 
mittee appointed for that purpose, 
has chosen for the annual dramatic 
production of the third year class a 
fantasy, Dear Br-utus, by Sir James 
M. Barrie. This play was presented 
on the L. V. C. stage several years 
ago, and two years ago the junior 
class gave another of Barrie's plays, 
The Admirable Crichton. Barrie is 
also the author of the famous Peter 
Pan stories. 

The action of Dear Brutus takes 
place on midsummer eve, and through 
the magic of the night some of the 
characters have their youth restored 
and are able to live over in such a 
way that they enjoy the things they 
missed when they were actually 
young. It is not a costume play. One 
scene occurs out-of-doors, a setting 
which has not been used here very 
often in recent years. 

The cast of characters includes ten 
persons with about an equal number 
of men and girls needed. Dr Struble 
expects to begin casting the play next 
Monday afternoon and evening.

It has been previously expressed 
and reiterated in this column for the 
cooperation of the students, heads of 
student organizations, and adminis- 
tration heads in securing "news" ar- 
ticles for this publication. Much has 
been accomplished in this line and 
those who have done their part faith- 
fully are to be congratulated and to 
these rare souls La Vie Collegienne 
expresses her gratitude. 

However, these cooperative souls 
are few and far between. Last 
week the downtrodden masses who 
have long complained of their ill treat- 
ment in the hands of the press passed 
up a chance to provide themselves 
with publicity and the La Vie with 
a good news item. The incident re- 
ferred to is the announcement con- 
cerning the coming Day Student 
"Skeleton Scamporee," which was 
made last Friday in chapel. Scarcely 
fifteen hours before this announcement 
was made La Vie Collegienne made 
its weekly appearance on the campus. 
Surely this announcement could have 
been made in the columns of this stu- 
dent publication as it should have 
been, as it is not likely that the plans 
materialized in anyone's dreams. 



The changes that have been made 
this year by the chapel faculty com- 
mittee in the daily programs are to 
be commended. The introduction of 
the organ prelude before the service 
actually begins has aided greatly in 
turning the auditorium from its for- 
mer madhouse atmosphere to the qui- 
et serene one that should prevail. It 
is restful and sort of a retreat from 
the hustle of classes and other acti- 
vities to pause each day for a few 
minutes to listen to the quiet soft 
music which fills the chapel at the 
start of the fifteen minute period. 
Surely no better place could be found 
where students may relax and be more 
to themselves than the chapel during 
these preludes. 

The policy of having the various 
faculty members who are not profes- 
sionally connected with religion con- 
duct the morning service has been in- 
strumental in raising the students' 
opinion of chapel. It is all well and 
good to hear a minister tell of his 
beliefs and experiences as far as reli- 
gion and life are concerned, but when 
a person, who is primarily interested 
in other fields, expresses his views on 
these matters, it leaves a deep im- 
pression on the minds of the stu-

Evenin', folks! Do you mind if we 
sit down without any further prelim- 
inaries ? We're still a bit weak from 
the excitement of the game on Satur- 

* * *' 

While this is not a sports column, 
we want to say here and now that 
Saturday's contest was one of the best 
we have witnessed here at L. V. C. 
Playing hard, fighting football against 
a team that was at no time eithei 
aown or out, the Dutchmen earned a 
.nuch bigger laurel wreath than it is 
in our power to give them. And the 
fact that the game wound up with 
.he Blue and White on top didn't make 
it hard to take, either. 

And before we leave the subject, a 
salute to the Hawks is in order. When 
they came they were sporting a four- 
game winning streak; when they left 
chat streak was broken; but through 
it all they behaved like the knock- 
down and drag-out sportsmen that 
they are. Good luck, St. Joe — we'll 
see you next year! 

* * * 

Proboscis wishes to congratulate 
the L-Club on its successful Home- 
coming Dance. This mention gives us 
an admirable excuse for whispering 
abroad the fact that several times 
when the lights were low and nobody 
was supposed to be looking we caught 
various and sundry couples engagea 
in the gentle pastime of osculation. 
Oh — you don't believe it? Then read 
the next item. 

* * * 

We might, if we wanted to cite ex- 
amples in proof of the above asser- 
tion, call to your attention a North 
Hall senior from Minersville — or 
there's the junior basketball sensation 
irom Lebanon who is now cliff -dwel- 
ling. There are just a few; we'll save 
the rest for some future date, so keep 
your fingers crossed. 

The Men's Dorm isn't the only 
place where bull-sessions flourish, 
much as our male element prides it- 
self in the thought. The other night 
iSouth Hall staged one in which 22 ol 
a possible 28 gals were engaged, 
.vnile we haven't as yet found out 
just who or what was on the pan, 
we've adopted the old but effective 
policy of "boring from within" in an 
effort to get the low-down for you. 
We think, though, that the discussion 
centered on the situation in Spain. 

Strange, isn't it, how these history 
students bring in modern phenomena 
in discussing the days gone by ? Some- 
thing of the sort happened the other 
day when Dr. Shenk's 46 class made 
quite a point of the word "hangover" 
— the catch being that the subject 
under consideration was supersti- 

* * * 

The murder for this year is past 
and gone but the spirit of tomfoolery 
lingers on, as several of the boys in 
the Men's Dorm found out to their 
chagrin a few nights ago. Mr. Ciam- 
illo, for one, fell a victim to the 
pranksters, while Frank Lennon took 

almost as big a bite. 

* * * 

The acting ability of "Gabby" 
Brown helped considerably in putting 
over the deception. It's a stunt new 
to the campus, and one which has a 
good chance of becoming traditional. 
You'll have a tough time getting any- 
thing out of the boys on this one, 
girls; but so far as we know, it's 

pretty rich. 

* * * 

Aside to Chris Walk: Why did you 
get out of the room in such a hurry? 

Nobody would've told her about it. 

* * * 

Turning now to things cultural, 
Proboscis is pleased to see the in- 
creased interest in the Community 

|^ Lifting Book Lids 

Last week I had planned to recom- 
mend some etiquette books, in prep- 
aration for the weekend and especial- 
ly open house. It slipped my mind, 
but we can always — should always — 
use good manners. So I advise all 
and sundry to read Manners for Mill- 
ions by Sophie C. Haida. This is a 
practical book, easy to understand. 
Call no. = 895 H 117 m. If you feel 
in a mood to be amused, take up Em- 
ily Post's Etiquette, which I think is 
rather ridiculous. It's the most popu- 
lar etiquette book on the market, but 
most of the advice contained therein 
is suited for the very upper crust. I 
doubt if any L. V. C. student here 
will ever have a butler, a "town 
house," a lodge in Maine, or any oth 
er useless but much desired aid to 
living. Mrs. Post, however, echoes one 
sentiment in common with all author- 
ities on etiquette — manners are to 
make other people comfortable and 
happy. (Tip to freshman: we're not 
just upperclassmen, we're older peo 
pie. Always, always, wherever you 
go, respect for your elders is a car- 
dinal rule. College is supposed to rub 
off the raw edges, you know, and our 
few simple rules really have that in 

Tsk, tsk. All this lecturing has 
probably driven away my readers 
Them as has lingered may like to read 
Camel-bells of Baghdad, by Janet 
Miller. "Another travel story," this 
one about Arabia. Read approximate- 
ly 225 pages and then quit, because 
after that it is "another travel sto 
ry." The first part is genuinely, hon 
estly, sure-enough interesting, full of 
glamor, drama, humor, etal. Call no 
= 915.67 M615c. 

For even lighter reading take up 
some fiction. The library has two 
books by Dubose Heyward — Porgy, 
and Mamba's Daughters, both skillful 
sketches of negro life. Porgy is a 
brief rather tragic story. Mamba's 
Daughters weaves success out of tra 
gedy. Both hold the attention straight 
through to the end. 

I closing I wish to do some more 
lecturing. It seems, to yours truly, 
that many of today's very best sellers 
cash in on "dirt." I read neither Gone 
With the Wind nor And So, Victoria. 
Maybe I'm a prude, but I don't think 
we need the gutter everywhere. 

Au revoir. 

Concert Series which is being mani- 
fested by the student body. Having 
learned from an unofficial source 
that more tickets have been sold 
here this year than ever before, we 
are forced to conclude that maybe 
we're learning something more than 
how to play pinochle after all. 

j|e * sje 

Some of us will know little or noth- 
ing about what's going on, but at 
least we will have been exposed to 
what are sometimes called "the fin- 
er things," and it's hardly likely that 
they'll do us any harm. Those who 
heard Bruna Castagna sing on Tues- 
day night will bear out this conten- 
tion — her program was really worth 

listening to.

Preparations for the Open House 
on Sunday are taking on the aspect 
of a New York welcome to a trans- 
Atlantic flyer. Ideas so far range 
from a demonstration of card tricks 
to salon (with one o) music played 
on a grand piano. New curtains are 
blossoming in profusion; and the 
whole dorm has a more or less un- 
natural air about it. 

* * * 

Before we forget all about it, that 
parade last Friday night was a swell 
idea. Reviving the old coffin pepped 
matters up considerably, and all in 
all the affair had quite an effect on 
the attitude of most of us toward the 
game the following day. We hope to 

L. V. Stage 

The first consideration for this 
week is the performance of "The 
Maker of Dreams" which was witness- 
ed by a good-sized audience last Sat- 
urday night in the chapel. Before go- 
ing any further, let it be known that 
insofar as this column is concerned 
the play was considered very good 
and will be treated as such. 


There is little doubt that the play 
was well-received — and no wonder; 
with Miss Trout doing a graceful and 
well-rounded job in the part of Pier- 
rette, Mr. Oliver being equally facile 
as Pierrot (although, to be truthful, 
his singing voice could at times have 
been improved upon), and Mr. Clark 
treating the fanciful part of the Mak- 
er of Dreams in his best manner, the 
audience had cause only for praise. 

The events of the evening also belied 
the oft-repeated contention that ar 
L. V. C. audience cannot appreciate 
anything which is not so obvious as 
to approach being lowbrow. If ever 
a play was pure fantasy, this was; 
but so gracefully and purposefully was 
it done that no one short of a barbar- 
ian could have failed to appreciate it. 

A great deal of credit, then, is due 
the cast and also Lloyd Beamesderfer. 
who directed the charming piece. It is 
doubtful that there was any discord- 
ant note in the whole affair. 

Directing our attention now to th 
Clio-Philo one-acter, "The New Bride 
which is to be given on Saturday 
night, we've heard that the cast is 
coming along well and will be all set 
to go by the time the whistle blows. 
Ben Goodman, who is directing, has 
been driving his people as hard as 
circumstances have permitted and, 
should nothing unforeseen occur, ex- 
pects a bang-up performance. 

Dress rehearsals tonight and to- 
morrow night should provide ample 
opportunity for putting the finishing 
touches to the show. This shindig has 
several surprises in store, in addition

Progress is being made also on 
"Tovarich." With the date having 
been set back to Nov. 16, some of the 
tension has been lifted, and the cast 
has settled down to learning lines 
and perfecting rough spots in the ac- 
tion. This, of course, is a more or 
less gradual process. 

In this connection it may be apro- 
pos to mention that the players have 
made unusual headway in the matter 
of learning lines — it is quite appar- 
ent that they have been putting time 
on their parts — at least, more so than 
is usually the case. And, as anyone 
who has acted knows the sooner re- 
hearsals can proceed without being 
constantly disturbed by interruptions 
while somebody gets a forgotten line, 
just that much sooner can begin the 
polishing process which is so essen- 
tial to the turning out of a well-round- 
ed play. 

Further than this, one would have 
difficulty in deciding definitely to just 
what stage of completion the play has 
advanced. Suffice it to say that 
things are coming along satisfactor- 
ily, and that Wig and Buckle will add 
to its list of successes in three weeks 
—of which, more later. For the pres- 
ent, then, it's — so long!

S bovs closed in and mixed it up 
tbe th a right good will. After the 
hs had won the first tug, they help- 

ed the 

frosh stage a mud and water 


ttle m the middle of the Quittie. 
This ranged in type from actual fist- 
throwing to childish water splashing. 
Even at the end of the aff air the vic- 
torious sophomores had to fight for 
the trophy, for the frosh seemed de- 
termined to take something home, if 
not the victory. 

The honor of carrying the rope 
across went to one Jarrett Madeira, 
and at 9:05 a. m. he waded the muddy 
Quittie with the rope over his should- 
er and amid the usual threats of the 
sophomores as to what would happen 
if he got the rope wet; and as usual, 
the rope did get wet. And nothing 
much happened. 

There was some trouble about the 
precise location of the center of the 
stream. The observer on the left 
bank upstream didn't agree with the 
judge on the right bank downstream, 
neither did anyone agree with anyone 
else. Senator Tuffy Lehman raised 
frequently a plaintive call for justice, 
but was ignored most of the time. 
Cries of "More rope" were answered 
by generous allowances of several 
centimeters, and now and then half 
an inch. 

With the sophomores on the east 
bank, the frosh on the west and the 
Quittie flowing peacefully between, 
the signalstone was thrown in the 
water and the tug was on. Immediate- 
ly the frosh lack of experience was 
noticeable, and although at one time 
in the beginning of the heat when they 
could have ended things rather 
promptly, they folded up and lay on 
the rope. The sophs simply sat tight 
and out-waited their opponents. Then 
after about ten minutes of this sort 
of thing Silvers' men settled down to 
business, and soon freshman, Ralph 
Mease, was sliding down the slippery 
bank into the creek, followed by the 
rest of the team in short order.

The sophomores, after their win, 
didn't go around by the bridge as is

Winning Pass And Score 


— Photo by Carmean 

This unusual photo shows Raymie Frey snaring the aerial from Ed 
Kress which proved to be the margin of victory for the Dutchmen. On the 
right Frey is seen in the act of catching the pass, while on the left he is 
shown legging his way to touchdown territory. This trick photography is the 
result of combining two snaps of Frey on this play.

second stanza when they, too, took to 
the air. Laux faded back and heaved 
a tremendous pass to Morrison who 
was brought down on the L. V. C. 
eight after a fifty yard gain. The 
Hawks advanced the ball to within 
inches of the goal line only to be halt- 
ed by the merciless edict of Father 
Time via the half-time gun. 

During the third period the ball 
moved ceaselessly back and forth with 
neither team threatening. In the final 
canto the Valley offense again opened 
up on a series of passes from Kress 
to Frey. Finally, Kress rifled a pass 
to Frey who caught the ball on the 
Crimson and Gray twenty-five, ducked 
a tackier, and loped over the payoff 
stripe. Machine-like Tony Rozman 
perfectly place-kicked the extra point 
to put the game on ice. 

The Hawks surged back in a be- 
lated effort and scored in the closing 
minutes of the struggle. Laux made 
the point after touchdown. The Dutch- 
men were content to play for time. 

St. Joseph's excelled in first downs 
and yards gained, displaying through 
out a superior attack. But they pay 
off on scores and therein lies the sto- 
ry. The Dutchmen had everything to 
gain and nothing to lose, while the 
Hawks had an unsullied record to 
uphold. The game was one of those 
traditional kind and spirits on both 
sides were keyed to a high pitch. 

Kuhn, Kress, Captain Brown and 
Frey excelled for the victors, while 
Laux and Seltzer sparked the losing 
cause. By defeating an heretofore un- 
beaten team the Valleyites avenged 
themselves against a team which 
handed them their first Homecoming 
Day upset back in 1935.

The Hyperboreans 

By Panoptes 

Now that Panoptes' identity 
known by a number of the Hyper 
boreans, your reporter has his trou 
bles. Some of the denizens of the 
day-student room avoid saying or do 
ing anything news-making in his 
presence. Others want him to print 
scandal about their confreres. But his 
worst problem is the publicity-hounds 
Several of these have actually sug- 
gested funny items about themselves : 
although Panoptes has not to his 
knowledge been hired by any of them 
as press-agent. 

Then there is the difficulty of find 
ing material for publication in over 
heard conversations during one of 
those hectic weeks when the men seem 
to talk about nothing that can be re 
peated in polite society. Kleiser and 
Deck indulged in a friendly argument 
about Ethics for the unmarried, which 
developed into a free-for-all, last 
Thursday morning; but Panoptes 
can't review that vociferous bull-ses- 
sion here. So it goes! 

What the men should have been 
discussing — organization for coopera- 
tion with the women in planning 
Hallowe'en party — was completely 
forgotten. The despairing day-stu- 
dentettes have had to go ahead with 
out any help from the stronger sex. 
No thanks to the cellar-dwellers that 
an enjoyable evening will be spent 
by all next Friday, October 28. 

Why does Polly Leininger have that 
perpetual grin covering her counte- 
nance? Can the reason be a husky 
football player from Albright? 

Bunny Witmer wants a name for 
her Angora kitten. Tommy won't suf- 
fice, for it's a female. 

Rex, looking at Curry's shoes, was 
heard to exclaim, "I can see how it 
might be hard for you to get started." 

Should Nichols be allowed to get 
away with it? Last year he was a 
difficult problem-child to the enter- 
prising upperclassmen who wantea 
him to appreciate how low is a Fresh- 
man. Now here he is, only a Sopho 
more, and one of our transfer stu 
dents was inquiring whether he were 
a Senior. 

What some people won't do to be 
different! Deck has made himself as 
popular as an agitated pole-pussy by 
smoking pipeful after pipeful of "aro- 
matic mixture number seventy-nine. 
Sam Rutter thinks it smells like a 
lady's boudoir on fire. Others thought 
it smelled like an even hotter place. 
For crying out high — or full-sound- 
ing, Lady-Love Leisey, use your in- 
fluence — if you are still conscious! 

It is said that Dr. Stokes asked 
one of his bright lights a simple ques- 
tion concerning production, with em- 
barrassing results. "What effect 
would an evening out have upon pro- 

From the Conservatory comes news 
of a day-student strike. Successfully 
the musicians refused to be required 
to use lockers at a high rental. They 
are now permitted to decide individ- 
ually whether or not to use them at 
a rental fifty per cent lower. The 
strike was a "clean-out" rather than 
a "sit-down." 

"Oh, who's been eating garlic?" 
"Throw them out!" "O-o-o-o! What 
a stench-" Such were the cries of 
disgust in the women's day-student 
room when the Spaghetti Sluffers re- 
turned from the George Washington 
Tavern, Thursday noon. We under- 
stand that this burly crowd reverted 
to childhood antics. They played 
"Family" with Helen Himmelberger 
and Merle Rider as "Mom and Pop" 
and the remaining eighteen as chil- 
dren. The question arose among the 
girls as to whether Mother Himmel- 
berger did not appear rather young 
for the role. 

Kalozeteans Start 

/Vettf Debate Series 

Due to some persistent agitation by 
those with the proper influence it was 
decided by the Kalozetean Literary 
Society to introduce the students to a 
series of debates relating, not to 
world problems, but rather to campus 
problems. The first of this series was 
held on Thursday evening last and 
the subject was, "Resolved that men 
students should have rules similiar to 
those placed upon women students." 
The affirmitive speakers were Edward 
Dressel and Clarence Lehman; the 
negative, Paul Meyers and Grover 
Zerbe. The affirmitive side took great 
pains to explain the meaning of the 
word "similar" and presented a con- 
structive plan which would not be too 
burdensome upon the carefree men, 
and in view of the school system 
might promote more scholastic ac- 
tivity. The negative side had no con- 
structive plan but simply picked out 
the flaws in the affirmitive' thinking. 

Dr. Stonecipher acted as critic and 
gave some pointers on how a debate 
might be improved by being a bit 
more formal, he did not pass judge- 
ment on the subject itself. There fol- 
lowed an interesting discussion on the 
subject and it was surprising to find 
that some men students would appre- 
ciate a few rules.

Clark gave what was probably his 
best performance at L. V. C. Not 
once did he drop out of character but 
kept throughout the atmosphere of 
the dream world that he helped create 
with his first entrance. 

Lloyd Beamesderfer as a student 
director deserves a great deal of 
credit. In two weeks of rehersals he 
put on a polished performance. To 
him also goes credit for the staging 
and lighting effects. He was assisted 
n this by Willam Clark. 

The most unusual feature of the 
-3lay was the piano accompaniment 
is a background. To Anita Patschke 
oes the credit for this. Without the 
costume the Maker of Dreams could 
never have created the atmosphere of 
the make-believe. 

All in all, the play deserved the 
many complimentary remarks that 
were given to it by alumni and stud- 
ents as well. Many of the former 
have expressed the hope that the Wig 
and Buckle will make a Homecoming 
play a tradition.

besides seeing some tried and true 
light-comedy performers with new 
personalities. Even the direction of 
the play has been handled by a so- 
ciety member, Ben Goodman, who, al- 
though he is new to the art of direct- 
ing, has done a masterly job of whip- 
ping this screamingly funny comedy 
into a polished production. The plot 
deals with the always new "Comedy 
of Errors" theme in a modern re- 
freshing manner. 

After the play there will be danc- 
ing and refreshments in the Alumni 
Gymnasium. The gym will be decorat- 
ed with fall motifs. Music for danc- 
ing will be provided by an orchestra 
which will play until twelve.

Pre-Meds To Take 
Aptitude Tests 

The Pre-Medical Aptitude Test as 
administered for the past eight years 
by the Commission of the Association 
of American Medical Colleges has 
been scheduled to be given this year 
on December 2, at three o'clock in the 
biology lecture room. 

This test, the purpose of which is 
to measure the adequacy of the as- 
pirant medical student's preparation 
and his capacity and fitness for ad- 
vancement, is now one of the normal 
requirements for admission to medi- 
cal schools. 

Uniform sealed examination blanks 
are sent out from the headquarters 
of the Association in Washington, D. 
C, to the numerous pre-professional 
colleges. These sheets remain sealed 
until the hour of the test, after the 
completion of which they are immedi- 
ately returned to Washington for 
grading and filing. 

The Lebanon Valley students who 
have signed to take the test and so 
apparently indicated their desire to 
enter a medical school next fall are 
as follows: John Moyer, Clarence 
Lehman, John Kitzmiller, Howard

Tossing" aerials with unerring accuracy, Eddie Kress and Captain

three minutes to play, the Chester 
lads kicked to the Valleyites who liv- 
ed up to their name of Flying Dutch- 
men and flew from their own 26- 
yard line straight down the field 
across the Cadets' goal line to take 
not only the lead away from the fight- 
ing soldiers, but also their spirit. 

Lebanon Valley enjoyed a 9-0 lead 
at half-time, the nine points being the 
result of some hard football in the 
second period. The Blue and White 
had possession of the ball in mid-field 
at the beginning of the second canto. 
They were benefitted by a 15 yard 
penalty when De Rouen who had just 
entered the fray attempted to chat 
with his teammates. A pass, Kuhn to 
Walk, was good for 10 yards and a 
first down on the 25 yard line. Kress 
and Lennon, on two running plays, 
gained a first down on the Cadet 11- 
yard stripe. After two unsuccessful 
aerials, Frey nabbed a pass on the 5- 
yard line. At this point Tony Roz- 
man booted a field goal from a diffi- 
cult angle to put the Dutchmen in 
front, 3-0. 

The second score came in the same 
period. After P. M. C. had advanced 
to the Blue and White 25 yard line 
on hard running plays, they attempted 
a pass that was intercepted by Bill 
Rakow on his own 15. From there 
the Dutchmen took to the air. Kress 
dropped back and tossed a forward to 
Brown who ran to the Cadet 45. A 
f ive yard penalty against P. M. C. and 
two line bucks by Vaughn and Schillo 
made it first down on the 33 yard 
Hne. Kress tossed a pass to Frey 
good for five yards and then faded

concert in that town, they will go by 
train to St. Louis; thence by plane 
to Oklahoma City where they will 
be taken to the University of Okla- 
homa at Norman to present their sec- 
ond concert. It is interesting to note 
that Norman is the home town of 
both artists. 

The next concert will be at Kansas 
City. From there they will travel all 
night by plane to Scots Bluff, Ne- 
braska, for another appearance. Then 
they will go to Independence, Kansas,

Nine Seniors 
Nominated For 
Who's Who List 

Collegiate Recognition 
Given Campus Leaders 
In National Publication 

According to recent communications 
received on the campus, nine members 
of the senior class have been selected 
from the student body to have their 
names appear in Who's Who Among 
Students in American Universities 
and Colleges. The volume is a na- 
tional publication which was started 
five years ago to create a national 
recognition for students that was de- 
void of politics and fees. It contained 
the biographies of over 3,500 college 
leaders last year. 

The seniors selected are as follows: 
Howar Baier, Helen Bartlett, Roberi 
Clippinger, Thomas Guinivan, Clar- 
ence Lehman, Robert Long, Edith 
Metzgar, Robert Tschop, and Roy 
Weidman. They have been chosen as 
meeting the admission requirements 
of character, scholarship, leadership, 
in extra-curricular activities, and po- 
tentialities of future usefulness to 
business and society. 

The plan of the book is to annually 
publish the biographies of outstand- 
ing students in America. Freshmen 
and Sophomores are excluded from 
admission. The purpose is to provide 
an incentive for the students, to be a 
means of compensation for what the 
students have done, to be a recom- 
mendation to the business world, and 
to be a standard of measurement for 
students similar to Phi Beta Kappa 
and the Rhodes Scholarship Award. 

Biologists Feature 
Films And Report 

The second monthly meeting of the 
Biological Society will be held Monday 
at 7:30 o'clock in the biology lecture 
room. Since the speaker engaged for 
this meeting can not be present, there 
results a slight change in the pro- 
gram as printed for the first semes- 
ter's meetings. 

The program will be opened by an 
address by John Moyer on the subject 
of drugs, which will be followed by 
two reels of film entitled, Ovulation, 
Fertilization and Early Development 
of a Mammalian Egg. This film was 
procured from the American Museum 
of Natural History and proves to be 
highly educational judging from the 
opinions of those who witnessed its 
first showing. The remainder of the 
meeting will be occupied in observing 
the actions of several protozoa, par- 
ticularly a large amoeba which is be- 
ing held in "captivity" in the biology 
office. They will be projected on the 
screen with the micro-projection ap- 

Anyone who is interested in biology 
is invited to attend these meetings, 
whether they be a member of the so- 
ciety or not, for at almost every reg- 
ular meeting it is planning to present 
worthwhile pictures, procured from 
educational centers. The subjects of 
these films will vary from those of a 
slightly technical nature to general 
health topics of interest to everyone. 

Rural Schools 
Main Theme of 
Chapel Lecture 

Dr. Lee Driver Lectures 
Chapel Audience About 
Educational Problems 

On Wednesday morning, November 
2, Dr. Lee Driver, head of Rural Ed- 
ucation in Pennsylvania, lectured to 
chapel attendants in the second of 
the chapel lecture series. Dr. Driver, 
who has appeared on the campus in 
a similar capacity in previous years, 
spoke on "Rural Education." Last 
year he entertained the student body 
with a characterization of the life of 
James Whitcomb Riley. 

Dr. Driver has long been associated 
with education, having started as a 
teacher in a one-teacher school in his 
native Indiana at the age of 16. His 
record includes 55 years of experi- 
ence in this field. At the present time 
he is particularly interested in the 
development of the rural schools of 
this state and is focusing much of 
his attention on the problem of con- 
solidation. "A consolidated school is 
the combination of at least two ele- 
mentary schools having two teach- 
ers," said the speaker as he intro- 
duced his subject. He also stated, "I 
believe in consolidated schools because 
they offer better opportunities for the 
teacher to do constructive work and 
the pupils have the advantages of 
having better facilities for the study 
of music and art which have become 
practical in our day and age and is 
essential to the life and development 
of every child." 

During the course of his lecture, 
Dr. Driver outlined and discussed the 
evolution of various laws which have 
played an important part in the de- 
velopment of rural education in this 
state. Several personal experiences 
were recounted to illustrate the intri- 
cacies of the legal set-up of this type 
of education. According to the lec- 
turer, there are 125,000 children in 
Pennsylvania who are transported to 
schools and that the once numerous 
one-teacher schools have diminished 
in number to 136.

Halloween Parties 

Held In GirTs Dorm 

The spirit of Hallowe'en filled the 
atmosphere in two of the girls' dorms, 
at least, on Monday night, October 
31. The girls of South Hall and of 
West Hall laid aside their books and 
their worries for a little while and, 
garbed in the traditional costumes of 
the season, convened in Delphian Hall 
and in West Hall parlor for Hal- 
lowe'en parties. 

The South Hall girls were enter- 
tained by playing some of the cus- 
tomary Hallowe'en games and by 
dancing. The climax of the evening 
came when the girls "followed the 
leader" upstairs and downstairs, in 
doors and out doors, out windows and 
in again until they arrived at refresh- 
ments which consisted of pumpkin 
pie, apples, cookies, candy, and cider. 
Dorothea Krall, Edna Rutherford, 
and Marjorie Holly comprised the

join a society 

For the past seven weeks the four 
literary societies have been conduct- 
ing what is commonly known as a 
"rush season." All you freshmen and 
new students have been the guests of 
these groups at various hikes, smok- 
ers, and joint sessions, as well as oth- 
er entertainments. Naturally you ask 
the question, "Why all this fuss?" 
The answer is the societies have hon- 
ored you, feted you, smoked with you, 
hiked with you, and entertained you 
for one reason — so that you might 
meet their members, become acquaint! 
ed with them, and learn to know them 
as friends and also to initiate you 
to the activities and functions of their 
organizations. Behind this apparent 
reason lies another more basic funda- 
mental purpose — to have you decide 
which group you wished to become 
affiliated with during your college ca- 
reer here at Lebanon Valley. 

In spite of all this whirlwind acti- 
vity you still ask yourself, "Why join 
a society?" You, no doubt, have heard 
a long list of reasons for joining a 
society. This list probably ranged 
from "because everyone usually does 
to "for fellowship and the training you 
receive." Perhaps the best reason or 
reasons for joining one of these 
groups can best be found in the fol- 
lowing paragraph written, unsolicit- 
ed, to the editor by a former student, 
at Lebanon Valley, who has aimed 
high in life and hit his mark: 

"As I look back over the years, I 
realize that the training that I re- 
ceived in my Literary Society was 
one of the most valuable factors in 
my college education. There I learned 
to face an audience and learned to 
think on my feet. I learned parlia- 
mentary practice, knowledge of which 
was a great value to me many times 
in my busy life. Moreover, it seems 
to me that there we unconsciously in- 
tegrated the unrelated knowledge that 
came to us bit by bit in the classroom. 
Then, above all, I formed the friend- 
ships that have endured." 

This summation of the benefits that 
have been received by a person who 
has spent four years in the whole- 
some atmosphere of a society and who 
is far enough removed from his un- 
dergraduate days to review accurately 
the advantages that he gained through 
his membership in one of our literary 
societies is sufficient to cover all pos- 
sible reasons why you should join a 
society. Possibly you have heard that 
the societies have changed since those 
old days and that things are different 
now. This is not true. No one can 
deny that there is still a splendid op- 
portunity afforded any one who wish- 
es to make lasting friendships and 
to learn to think standing on his feet 
before an audience if that person is 
not too passive to grasp the chance. 

In view of the advantages, social 

and educational, that have been point- 
ed out, it is our advice to all new stu- 
dents, men and women, to join one of 
these groups. You have come to col- 
lege to round out your personality 
and character and polish off the rough 
edges that may appear in your make- 
up, and there is no other activity which 
offers you the opportunity that these 
organizations do to accomplish these 
things. If you are undecided about 
which activities on the campus will 
do you the most good, you must sure- 
ly decide on society membership as 

In choosing the group you will join, 
there are several factors you should 
keep in mind. The foremost of these 
is that the good you will get out ol 
your society will be no greater than 
the good you contribute to the society. 
This is the reason many students com- 
plain about societies as being worth- 
less — they have not learned to work 
for their advantages and seek them 
already on a gold plate. Another fac- 
tor to bear in mind is that it is essen- 
tial that you carefully consider and 
weigh all possibilities. You want to 
join the group in which most of your 
friends will be found, not in your first 
years at L. V. C, but during your 
later years when friendships begin to 
assume value and worth. Then, too, 
you want to decide which society of- 
fers you the better opportunity for 
the development of your personality 
and talents, keeping in mind that 
your attitude will be a determining 
factor here again. 

Avoid all snap judgments because 
they will be regretted. Before Mon- 
day you will have time to consider 
all possible angles of the situation, 
so take time to make a carefully 
thoughtful decision. Don't let yourseil 
be swayed by loud talk or threatened 
action. Keep a cool head when the 
pressure becomes heavy and then make 
your decision to join a society, your 


Lifting Book Lids 


This time I won't even pretend to 
review books. The necessity of per- 
using dull textbooks prevents yours 
truly from much recreational read- 
ing. Of the new books, there are 
many that look good. My Son, My 
Son! by Howard Spring, and The 
Yearling by Marjorie Kinnan Raw 
lings, are two fiction books, hot oft 
the press, that are going the rounds 
quickly. Hold-over from last yeart 
best sellers is Cronin's The Citadel; 
the reserved list is still a mile long. 
This book, incidentally, is now in the 

Biography fans will find Fanny 
Kemble, by Margaret Armstrong, o. 
especial interest. Indeed, any history 
student has probably met her in class 
several times, so here is an opportu- 
nity for more intimate knowledge. 

In the new magazines I ran across 
some purty nice reading. I wish to 
again remind you of Scribner's — Life 
in the U. S., Photographic. Don Her- 
old's column echoes some of our own 
sentiments. Tent City, Texas, by Elea- 
nor West, will shock you— it's a story 
of that vast army of migratory agri- 
cultural workers. 

American Mercury is as per usual. 
Always something there. Many of my 
fellow students will echo the senti- 
ments expressed by Joe R. Motherall 
in Work Your Way through College? 

Those of you who are interested (as 
who isn't) in gastronomic satisfac- 
tion will find pleasure in The Forum. 
Sidney W. Dean's That Was Cooking! 
is a tantalizing tale of the things 
mother and grandmother used to 
make. Yours truly is anxious to try 
out some of the recipes contained 
therein. In line with the current vogue 
for literature on insanity is They 
Said I Was Mad — Anonymous. 

Do better when mid-semesters are 



'What are you going to do after grauu^uon; 
run a filling station or be a wrestler?** 


By Proboscis 
It might perhaps be a wise thing 
to begin this week's spasm with an 
appropriate poetic qoutation. If such 
is the case, the first one which comes 
to mind is that little bit of midnight 
blue which goes: "The melancholy 
days are come, the saddest of the 

All of which serves as an introduc- 
tion to the reminder that the quaint 
occurrence known hereabouts as "mid- 
semesters" has again sneaked up on 
us. Once more the sound of wailing 
and gnashing of teeth pervades the 
dorms, and such talk as "It was a 
snap" or "He sprung one on us" is 
the order of the day. But ... be of 
good cheer; when these are over we 
can wait until January before start- 
ing to worry in earnest. 

* * * 

Repercussions of the Open House 
on Sunday have kept Proboscis con- 
stantly in an uproar. There is, for 
instance, the story of Haverstick's 
glassware and bottle display which, 
when viewed by Dr. Wilt, elicited as 
comment only, "Unique." Another 
masterpiece of understatement. Miss 

Gillespie liked the curtains. 

* * * 

Dr. Wilt is our authority for the 
statement that church attendance was 
about 108 short on Sunday morning. 
Since this figure is approximately the 
population of the Men's Dorm, we 
can now understand why all floors 

and windows were relatively clean. 

* * * 

All students enrolled in one or more 
of Prof. Gingrich's courses have cause 
for rejoicing these days. Chris got 
the limit on Monday and has been 
positively beaming ever since — the 
hope has been expressed that the good 
humor will prevail when he makes out 

his mid-semester exams. 

* * * 

Interviewed: One Gus Maury by a 
Mr. J. Walter Esbenshade, on Tues- 
day morning. We understand that Mr. 
Esbenshade did most of the talking, 
but were unable to get Maury's reac- 
tion toward the conversation. 

In passing, Proboscis takes time to 
note that the boys came through in 
Frank Merriwell fashion against P. 
M. C to pull the game out of no- 
where, 15 to 13. The victory ran the 
current string to four straight, and 

was also the fourth successive win 
for Frock's proteges over the Chester 
Cadets. Just one more step in the path 
which leads, as always, to Albright. 

Are our eyes deceiving us, or do we 
detect a new Platonic friendship on 
the campus? Looks to us as though 
Dottie Schindel had treed a Coon — at 
least, they're walking together. You've 
gotta be a football hero. . . . 

* * * 

This week's feature story concerns 
none other than the redoubtable Sha- 
mokin Splash, the Bucknell Bruiser, 
Mr. Grow. Our third floor correspond- 
ent informs us that the gentleman 
in question has had another name 
added to his already extensive list of 
handles. He is now known to all and 
sundry as "Sweet Potato" — according 
to our stooge, it all happened the oth- 
er night when the Bruiser pulled in 
from a heavy date. For further par- 
ticulars, see any dwellers of the third 
floor west. 

* * * 

Since this will be our last column 
before the societies sign up members, 
we feel that we should take this final 
opportunity to again venture a word 
of advice to the freshmen and new 
students. In short, boys and girls, 
remember that your choice will have 
a considerable influence on your four 
years of college life. That's a long 

* * * 

There is a possibility that you'll be 
"high-pressured." That is just what 
you should avoid — make up your own 
mind ; and in making your final choice, 
go deeper than mere appearances. 
Pick out the group which you think 
will most influence you for the better. 
Here's a hope that you won't go 
wrong ! 

* * * 

We thought they had telephones in 
Ephrata, but evidently there was a 
mistake somewhere. Arlene Hoffman 
almost dislocated her spinal column 
on Sunday trying to find the crank 
on the display telephone in Room 214, 
only to find that there wasn't any. 
Maybe it works by remote control, Ar- 
lene — or are you sure there was a 
telephone there? 

* * * 

Well, if we're going to study for 
that exam tomorrow, we'd better cut 
this short and crack the book. See 
you next week! 

Dance Band Reviews 

by Shedd MacWilliams 

In instituting a column especia 
for campus jitterbugs, a special po 
has been made of selecting for the 
first band to be reviewed one which 
is on the heights and which has 
peal to local swing fans. Close yon r 
eyes and listen while we tell you that 
this week's subject is Larry Clinton 
and his orchestra. 

Despite the current popularity f 
the band it is still comparatively ne\? 
having been organized about eleven 
months ago expressly for the purpog e 
of making Victor Records. Prior to 
that time Larry had been with 
Dorsey Brothers Orchestra and, when 
that outfit split up, with Glen Gray' s 
Casa Loma crew. During this period 
George Simon, of the Lincoln Music 
Corporation, talked him into trying 
his hand at stock arranging. 

As a result, the Clinton versions of 
"Boston Tea Party" and "Christopher 
Columbus" brought out a terrific re- 
sponse from the Crew, but Larry soon 
tired of this and, having quit the 
band, took to arranging and writing 
new numbers of his own. Amoni 
these were "Whoa Babe," "Study in 
Brown" and "Satan Takes A Holi- 
day." . He still does much of his own 
work in this line, his latest being 
"Milenberg Joys" and "My Reverie." 

After organizing his own orchestra, 
he soon became busy with recording 
and this led to a feature spot on the 
R. C. A. Victor Hour over N. B. C, 
Using many of his own tunes and ar- 
rangements, he skyrocketed to almost 
instant success. As his fame spread 
his booking agents, Rockwell-O'Keefe, 
began to schedule tours throughout 
the country, wisely keeping him al- 
most entirely on college engagements 
where his popularity attained still 
greater proportions. 

Following these college dates, Larry 
was placed in the Glen Island Casino, 
where he smashed all records. Here 
he used the art of contrast to great 
advantage, jumping intelligently from 
soft "hug me tight" music to fast, 
raucous "look at me shag" blasts. 
This technique gave all the "alliga- 
tors" the opportunity for romancing 
and dancing all on the same spot 

At present Clinton plays nightly at 
the International Casino in New York 
City; on the first of October he start- 
ed a mealy series for Quaker Oats at 
eight o'clock Saturday evening over 
the N. B. C. Red network, and or. 
Sunday, Nov. 20, he lights up the & 
B. S. at ten o'clock for Old Gold Cig- 
arettes. Snaring two commercials at 
once is an enviable achievement and 
one which speaks highly for the qual- 
ity of Larry's music. 

Even though Larry Clinton's band 
is usually referred to as a swing bani 
its the sweeter stuff at which he ex- 
cels. This is due both to the music- 
ians and fine arrangements. 

Larry hates "jam sessions" — an" 
by the way, here's a tip to our pr° s ' 
pective song writers. Larry Clinto" 
does his composing anywhere at aUi 
preferably away from a piano. ^ e 
says a lot of other composers shoul 
stay away from a piano also.

Through The Ether 
With The Dutchman 


Sparkling Grid Leader 


After several sporadic attempts to 
urv ive the ax of the "bogey man" 
editor, this column once more slips 
as t the censorship that had it buried 
under other copy for weeks. Recent 
developments in L. V. sportdom again 
ver-rules this official's edict, and here 
we are. 

Those last two battles with St. 
joe's and P. M. C. have definitely 
placed the stamp of approval on coach 
Frock as far as the students are con- 
cerned. The long-awaited touchdown 
power has been developed and the 
Dutchmen are beginning to do things 
in a big way. In dropping Henie 
Miller's Hawks into the ranks of the 
hoi polloi, the Frockmen suddenly hit 
t ] ie headlines as far as the Philly 
scribes are concerned. The scoring- 
passes in this tilt left the Hawks 
clawing on the ropes in utter confus- 

TJhat thriller-diller last samedi 
(Saturday, courtesy of Madame 
Green) at Chester warmed the hearts 
of all Dutchmen followers and right- 
ly so. ■ When a team can come from 
behind in the last period to clinch a 
victory, they have something more 
than playing ability— that elusive 
thing, spirit. In making it four in a 
row, the Blue and White gridders 
had a real battle on their hands to 
turn back Jud Timm's cadets. Fresh 
from a rousing victory over the Ursi- 
nus Bears, they were a tough lot to 

Interesting sidelines on that game 
appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer 
last Monday when Jimmy Isaminger 
handed our boys a bouquet for their 
brilliant air attack and also comment- 
ed on the failure of the downhearted 
Chester lads to make their appear- 
ance at the evening meal. 

Reports indicate that the passing 
attack which netted in excess of two 
hundred yards for the locals is one 
that is hard to surpass. 17 out of 20 
aerials completed is some bombing 
even for Redskin Sammy Baugh or 
T. C. U.'s Davey O'Brien. Raymie 
Frey's feat of snaring 5 out of six 
is plenty good in anybody's apple or- 
chard, while Captain "Gabby" Brown 
finally came to the limelight that he 
has deserved for long when he scored 
our six-pointers on beautiful catches 
of Ed Kress' fancy passes. Also gra- 
tifying was the sight of Tony Rozman 
booting another three-pointer to get 
back in the stride again. You will 
all remember last year's 3-0 home- 
coming victory over these same foes. 

Rumors from down Berks way are 
wont to indicate that the annual Al- 
bright fracas will top all past en- 
gagements. The Reading Elks are 
supposed to be sponsoring the tilt as 
a charity affair for the benefit of crip- 
Pled children. Thus in addition to the 
traditional complexion of the battle, 
the added color of playing for dear 
SWeet charity should make this game 
the biggest gridiron event of the year

Susquehanna Foes 
Threaten Record 

Susquehanna University, Lebanon 
Valley s grid opponent next Saturday, 
will present a rangy, brawny squau 
with great expectations and a poor 
recora. waving already piayeu iour 
of its seven scheduled games, the 
orange and Black can point to no 
wins or ties, ihe very fact that Sus- 
quehanna has yet to win a game 
makes an upset all the more probable. 
JL. V. C. is riding on the crest of a 
tour-game winning streak, while Sus- 
quehanna is floundering in the dol- 
drums of defeat. The game will be 
played at Selinsgrove on University 

The team is coached by no less a 
personage than Amos Alonzo Stagg, 
jr., son of the Connie Mack oi foot- 
ball. One team that both Susquehan- 
na and L. V. C. have played is Morav- 
ian. If you will remember, the Dutch- 
men pinned back the Greyhounds' ears 
several weeks ago, 9-6. Moravian 
triumphed just last Saturday over the 
Orange and Black, 13-7, in a close 
contest. However, the Crusaders out- 
scored Moravian in the matter of first 
downs by 11 to 9. The Crusaders 
boast of a dangerous offensive star in 
'Brilliant" Bobby Bastress, diminu- 
tive, hip-swinging half-back. "Junie" 
Miller, 180 pounds of triple-threat dy- 
namite, captains the team which is 
composed of but five Seniors and thus 
denotes a definite lack of experience. 

The Crusaders opened their season 
by losing a nip and tuck fight to Hav- 
erford, 7-6. Drexel then administer- 
ed them a 19-3 pounding. Alfred, of 
New York State, maced them, 19-0, 
and then, fighting desperately to over- 
come the jinx, they dropped the close 
Moravian game as mentioned above. 

With the possible exception of 
Dickinson, Lebanon Valley is the 
strongest team to face Susquehanna 
this year. Since the turn of the cen- 
tury, the teams have met intermit- 
tently for seventeen years. Valley 
has won ten victories to Susquehan- 
na's five. The two remaining games 
were 0-0 ties. The last time the op- 
ponents clashed — back in 1924 — L. V 
C. came off victorious by a 27 to 
count. The Crusaders will be fight 
ing doggedly to break into the win 
column, so Lebanon Valley will not 
do well to sell them short. 

sociaton and Charley's smart play has 
earned him another shot at the big 
top. Incidentally this season of the 
hound and the hare reminds us of the 
unfortunate gunning accident that al 
most cut short his career as a ball 

oack and tossed a perfect running 
pass to Captain Brown who was 
otanding over the goal line guardeu 
jy two soldiers. Schillo's attempt a\ 
x placement was low. The half end 
jd with the score: L. V. C , 9; P. M 
J., 0. 

The militia men came back strong 
n the second half and began to d 
ome scoring of their own. After sev 
ral punt exchanges, Kress threw . 
jabs on his own 35 yard line that wa 
ntercepted by De Rouen who dashe. 
.nto pay-off land. The attempted 
placement was wide. 

In the closing minutes of the third 
period the Cadets started a vicious 
drive that produced a score shortly af- 
ter the last period began. Gaining 
possession of the ball on their 29- 
yard marker, the soldiers started a 
drive that literally tore L. V. C.'s line 
to pieces. After wreaking havoc with 
the Blue and White in mid-field, P. 
M. C. advanced the oval to the Leba- 
non Valley five yard btripe. At this 
point the line braced and failed to 
yield any ground. On the last down 
Hartzel faded back about 15 yards 
and shot a do or die pass into the end 
zone. Schraeder, a substitute end, 
caught the pigskin for the score. 
Hartzel kicked the extra point. 

Gloom reigned among the Blue & 
White supporters, until those final 
never-to-be-forgotten three minutes. 
After receiving a P. M. C. punt on 
their own 26 yards line, the Lebanon 
Valley Collegians began their sensa- 
tional drive. Kress shot a pass to 
Lennon that was good for a first 
down on L. V. C.'s 37. Lennon gained 
about eight on a line buck. Kress 
then faded back and tossed a for- 
ward to Frey that was good for a first 
on the mid-field stripe. On the same 
type of play, a spread formation, 
Kress threw a 35 yard aerial to Cap- 
tain Brown who raced the remaining 
distance to the goal line aided by 
some excellent blocking on the part 
of Frank Lennon. Thus three per- 
fectly executed plays decided a nip 
and tuck battle.

Present grid mentor at Lebanon 
Valley, who has been revealed as a 
former grid luminary to the student 
body in a recent newspaper clipping. 

Head Grid Mentor 
levealed As Star 

Jerome W. Frock, '26, is well known 
to all the present day students as a 
coach rather than as a player. In 
addition to his years of tutoring ex- 
perience high class scholastic athletic 
circles, his five seasons as head men- 
tor of the Flying Dutchmen have 
somewhat obscured the record "Jer- 
ry" had compiled as a player in his 
undergraduate days. An expected dis- 
covery in a recent issue of the Lan- 
caster Intelligencer-Journal casts a 
new light on Frock as an active play- 
er for the Blue and White. The fol- 
lowing paragraph appeared on the 
sport page of that paper under the 
caption, Fifteen Years Ago: 

JERRY FROCK, playing center for 
Lebanon Valley College where he is 
now head coach, intercepted a pass 
to run 38 yards for a touchdown and 
the resulting extra point gave the 
proteges of "HOOKS" MYLIN a 7 to 
6 victory over the Franklin and Mar- 
shall College eleven. 

This clipping caused a sudden de 
sire to unearth more material con- 
cerning this former Annville colle 
gian. Investigation of several year 
books of the early twenties revealed 
a part of Frock's personality and abil 
ity that few students on the campus 
know. Regarding Jerry's playing, the 
1924 Quittie in viewing the varsity- 
squad described him as "our masher 
and when he mashed they re 
mained just that way." The 1925 
yearbook says, " 'Jerry' was without 
a peer at the center position. He broke 
up many enemy passes as well as in 
tercepting quite a few of them. 'Jer- 
ry' was the big gun in our victory 
over F. & M. His election to the cap- 
taincy can but express the gratitude 
of the other members of the team." 

Any reminiscences on Frock's life 
must needs include the side of "Jerry" 
that is missed by many who know 
him. The same yearbook of 1925 that 
discloses much of his playing ability 
also states that "not only has cool 
temperament won favors for him on 
the gridiron, but also the esteem of 
the boys in the 'dorm.' Seldom do we 
see 'Jerry' alone, but always sur- 
rounded by a gang of fellows. But 
don't think for a moment that such 
an amiable athlete escapes the admir- 
ation of the fairer sex; on the contra- 
ry, he is exceedingly popular with 
them. In fact, early morning classes 
and chapel are his only hindrances 
at school." Combine these personality 
traits to those with which we are al- 
ready familiar — his untiring drive for 
perfection, his quiet serious attitude 
while at his work, and his sincerity — 
and we must look at "Jerry" in a dif 
ferent light.

L. V. Stage 

First before the house today is "The 
New Bride," last week's Philo-Clio 
show. Aside from saying that the 
play as a whole was rather well-done 
and thoroughly enjoyable, we are at 
a loss as to just how and where to 


In the main the action of the piece 
centered about the antics of Ashley 
Barr, played by Marlin Espenshade; 
and that gentleman, while he had oc- 
casional lapses from character during 
which he appeared to be doing little 
of anything, played his part so well 
as to provide a solid foundation for 
the efforts of the rest of cast, 

Margie Bordwell and Jeannette Kal- 
bach both did excellent jobs and had 
a large share in the final success of 
the play. Danny Seiverling, in spite 
of an occasional seeming uncertainty 
as to his lines, held up strongly in 
the critical spots and must also be 
registered as an asset. 


John Dressier led the way for the 
supporting players who were, without 
exception, as strong as could have 
been desired. Credit for directing the 
play — and he did a capable job with 
scarcely enough time — goes to Ben 
Goodman. In short, a good play with 
plenty of appeal to an L. V. audience, 
and rather well done. 


A few weeks ago this column stated 
that the junior class had rejectee 
Barrie's "Dear Brutus" as a possi- 
bility for the class play. In the ligm 
of recent developments the accuracy 
of this remark seems to have become 
questionable; in fact, there is some 
likelihood of its being proved entirely 
false. Especially is this true since u 
has been made known that tryouts 
for "Dear Brutus" were held on Mon- 
day, and that rehearsals have already 
begun. Our sincerest apologies foi 
the error — 'but wait till we get oui 
hands on the guy who slipped us that 


With the cast as announced else- 
where in these columns including in 
its ranks several experienced actors 
and actresses, and with the magica^ 
name of Barrie speaking fully lor tht 
worth of the play itself, the junior^ 
would seem to have made a choice. 
Of this, more later. 


Meanwhile "Tiovarich" nears com- 
pletion, being now slightly less than 
two weeks removed from curtain time. 
In some unaccountable way the prom- 
ise which was early afforded by re- 
markable progress in learning of lines 
has failed to continue; in other words, 
some of the characters do not have 
their parts "cold" as yet. However, 
this aspect of the matter can be taken 
rather lightly. 

With an experienced cast such as 
this, some degree of elasticity in the 
matter of learning lines can safely be 
granted; but no cast can have too 
much time to devote to polishing the 
action of the play. And, too, no cast 
should be "kidding around" with only 
two weeks of practice remaining; and 
a tendency to do this has once or 
twice been in evidence. 


However, all things considered, 
things are progressing satisfactorily 
enough to assure a fast, well-timed 
performance. When people who know 
what they are about, theatrically 
speaking, decide to go to work — then, 
to use the vernacular, "it makes." 
The necessary decision should come 
any day now; meanwhile, this writer 
still thinks that "Tovarich" will be 

More on these last-named two plays 
next week. Meanwhile, shall we wait 
for further developments? 

''Photography As a Hobby' 
Discussed By Carmean 

The third in the series of Philo dis- 
cussion meetings was held last Wed- 
nesday evening at seven-thirty in the 
physics lecture room. Prof. D. Clark 
Carmean led the discussion, the sub- 
ject of which was "Photography as a 

Prof. Carmean introduced the sub- 
ject with a slightly technical discus- 
sion of the various types of films and 
cameras. He showed that in order to 
make photography successful as a 
hobby, a general knowledge of these 
two things is essential. He also 
pointed out that the more one became 
interested in his hobby, the more he 
would be constantly on the lookout 
for good "shots." 

Dr. Struble Announces 
Cast For Junior Play 

After the tryouts held on Monday, 
Dr. George D. Struble announced the 
cast for the Annual Junior Class Play, 
"Dear Brutus." Dr. Struble had 
charge of the casting of the play and 
will also direct production, assisted 
by Dr. C. A. Stine. Both men are cur- 
rently working on Wig and Buckle's 

The cast as announced includes a 
number of persons well-known in L. 
V. dramatics, as well as a group of 
newcomers to the stage. The cast of 
characters in the order of their ap- 
pearance is as follows: Alice Death, 
Mary Albert; Joanna Trout, Lucy 
Cook; Mrs. Coade, Evelyn Miller; 
Mabel Purdie, Barbara Bowman; La- 
dy Caroline, Esther Wise; Matey, 
William Bender; Lob, Ralph Lloyd; 
Jack Purdie, Richard Kauffman; Mr. 
Coade, William Jenkins; Will Death, 
Robert Wert; Margaret, Louise Say- 

Rural Schools 
Main Theme Of 
Chapel Lecture 

(Continued from Page 1) 

One feature of rural school admin- 
istration that was stressed in the talk 
was the use of the school plant as a 
community center. In connection witii 
this phase, he discussed the introduc- 
tion of the gymnasium into the school. 
Speaking of the value of physical 
training of this kind, the speaker es- 
timated "that more character is 
taught in play than in any other 
phase of education." He concludea 
his address with an account of the 
recent conflicts over consolidation in 
Lancaster County.

West Hall girls returned to child- 
hood days, and came dressed as little 
girls and boys. Children's games such 
as Did You Ever See a Lassie? and 
Ring Around the Rosy were played 
as well as several more grown-up 
games. Prizes for the funniest and 
cutest costumes went to Evelyn Mil- 
ler and Martha Davies, respectively. 
Refreshments were creamsicles, can- 
dy, pretzels, and apples. The enter- 
tainment committee included Evelyn 
Miller, Lucille Oiler, Esther Wise, 
and Lucy Cook; the refreshment com- 
mittee consisted of Margaret Boyd, 
Mabel Jane Miller, and Frances 
Prutzman; and Phoebe Geyer, Mar-

ma Bender formed the decoration 

German Club Plans 
For Annual Play 

At a recent meeting of Der Deutsche 
Verein, held in West Hall with the 
adviser of the club, Fraulein Lietzau, 
as hostess, it was voted to continue 
the custom of presenting a German 
play to the general public. President 
Robert Long appointed a committee 
to select a play for production, al- 
though it was not definitely decided 
upon as to exactly when the play 
would be presented. The suggestion 
of the use of a Pennsylvania Dutch 
play was brought up and dismissed 
because of difficulties expected with 
the language. 

The speaker for the evening was 
Dr. C. D. Stine, who chose the Penn- 
sylvania Dutch people and their his- 
tory for his topic. This was treated 
in an informal way by Dr. Stine, 
bringing out in his talk several Penn- 
splvania Dutch characters who at- 
tained national and state-wide impor- 
tance, especially in the colonial and 
revolutionary days. 

Other features of the program were 
the reading of* the minutes "auf 
Deutsch" by the former secretary, 
Theresa Stefan, several German vo- 
cal selections by Mildred Gangwer, 
accompanied by Anita Patschke, and 
general group singing.

They were dressed as a little boy and

pie, Prof, and Mrs. Carmean, Dr. and 
Mrs. Stokes. 

The Hyperboreans 

By Panoptes 

Again we admit with shame a ten- 
dency for day-studentettes to parti- 
cipate in childish activities. Their lat- 
est fad is playing with paper dolls. 
Maybe some kind souls would donate 
them some bigger and better cut-outs, 
for so far they have only one set be- 
longing to Evalyn May Strickler and 
Olga Lopes. 

Last week the Republican day-men 
were much occupied with the new in- 
door sport of confiscating Democratic 
political buttons, a sport not remotely 
related to wrestling. It is rumored 
that one moody gentleman lost twelve 
in a single day. Panoptes was amused 
to see him displaying one that left 
his political affiliation a bit vague in 
the mind of the casual observer, since 
it had come into too close proximity 
with a bunsen burner. 

While sniffing around the biology 
laboratory recently, Joe Gittlen no-

Alumnus Bob Spohn, one of the crash- 
ers, confessed he had had such a good 
time that he handed over his two-bits

official count shows that seven of the

the girls who prepared for the party. 
For even this meagre cooperation the 
women are sincerely grateful. . . . The

Blue And White Face Hard Contest 
As Albright Lions Roar Defy 
To Victory-Starved Foes 

On Saturday, Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutchmen will face their severest 
test of the season when they encounter a menacing, desperately enraged Al- 
bright Lion in his own den at Reading. The fracas will be the. twentieth an- 
nual encounter between the two schools in a traditional rivalry that began 
back in 1902. In the nineteen battles which have already been waged, the 
Dutchmen have twisted the Lion's tail 

nine times and the Lion has clawed 
the Blue and White banner to shreds 
eight times, while on two occasions 
both sides have retired on equal terms. 

While the Dutchmen can boast to a 
better record with five consecutive vic- 
tories and only one loss for the sea- 
son, the Crimson and White can point 
to decisive victories over Geneva, Ca- 
tawba, and Moravian, and very close 
defeats by Temple, Gettysburg, Buck- 
nell, and La Salle. In no games has 
Albright lost by more than one touch- 
down. The Dietzmen have rolled up 
71 points to their opponents 33. Mo- 
ravian, the only mutual foe of the two 
teams, was toppled, 32-0 by Albright, 
but the Frockmen barely eked out a 
9-6 win over the Greyhounds. 

Albright will present a big, brawny 
and brainy team with a fast, hard- 
charging, yet shifty backfield and a 
solid forward wall of granite. "Whit- 
ey" Quirin is a triple-threat back who 
must be watched. Popelka, a line- 
driving fullback, has been ramming 
holes in enemy lines all season. Bert 
Aszman is a fast halfback who has 
been seeing a lot of the opponents' 
secondary area this year. But Mario 
Nicotera will present the real offen- 
sive threat of the team. Kept out of 
the limelight for the past several 
years, by the brilliant Dick Riffle, Ni- 
cotera at last has his chance to come 
mto his own. Although he has been 
on the injured list of late, the snake-

Reynolds To Head 
Educational Group 

The annual fall meeting of the As- 
sociation of Liberal Arts Colleges of 
Pennsylvania for the Advancement of 
Teaching was held Friday, November 
4, at Harrisburg in the Council Room 
of the Education Building. Thirty- 
eight colleges and universities were 
represented; in all there were present 
about 45 Presidents, Deans and Pro- 
fessors of Education. Dr. Frederick 
G. Henke, Professor of Education at 
Allegheny College, has been presi- 
dent of this association ever since it 
was formed. After 15 years of service 
he asked to be relieved of the presi- 
dency. Dr. O. Edgar Reynolds was 
unanimously elected to take his place, 
due to the active part he has taken 
in the association for the last ten 
years, and to the faithful service he 
has rendered on the various commit- 
tees. At the same time, Dr. George 
Dunkelberger, Professor of Education 
at Susquehanna University was chos- 
en Vice-President and Dr. E. J. Ger- 
gely, Professor of Education at Mount 
Saint Joseph College, Secretary- 
Treasurer. The next meeting of the 
association was called for January 
20, 1939.

Students Plan Gigantic Rally 


These two words seem to be on the 
lips of everyone, students and faculty 
alike. And why shouldn't they be? 
The splendid brand of football played 
by the "Flying Dutchmen" in previous 
games has aroused our school spirit 
and pep to the breaking point and we 
will all be given the chance to "break" 
Friday morning in a rousing "pep 
meeting" and Friday night in a gi- 
gantic "pep parade and dance." 

The cheerleaders led by Danny 
Seiverling are planning to hold a pep 
meeting Friday morning at chapel 
time. They ask that everyone be 
there in order to make this the best 
pep meeting held on the campus this 
year. The committee chairmen to aid 
in this program are: Sam Derrick, 
Paul Myers, Hal Yeagley, Dan Seiv- 
erling and Paul Horn. Some of the 
faculty members will also be there to 
lend their talents in the meeting. 

On the eve of this exciting game 
the greatest pep parade ever put on 
will take place here at L. V. C. 

The evening will start at 7 o'clock 
when everyone will meet in front of 
the Administration Building. From 
here the group led by the band, which 
is rehearsing for the occasion, will 
parade through the town to the banks 
of the "Quittie" where a huge bon fire 
will start off the rally. After a few 
cheers and songs the crowd will pa- 
rade back through the town to the

dance will be held. The date rule

Boyd, Jack Moller and Clarence Leh-

manly possible.

Dance In Gym Follows Program 

Last Friday night the four literary societies of the campus — Kalo, Clio, 
Delphian, and Philo — joined together in sponsoring the grand finale of the 
"rushing season" for Freshmen and new students, the Four Society Joint 
Program and Dance. 

The program held in Engle Conservatory began with the tantalizing 

strains of the Kalo Kollegians. Their 

Campus To Be Scene 
Of W.A.A. Play Day 

The first hockey play day at Leba- 
non Valley will be held on Saturday. 
The girls have participated in play 
days at other schools, but this is the 
first time they have entertained other 
schools here. Shippensburg, Cedar 
Crest, and Susquehanna have been in- 
vited to participate. Each school will 
bring fifteen players. Two games will 
be played in the morning. The teams 
to play each other will be drawn by 
lot. Lunch will be served in the col- 
lege dining hall. After lunch there 
will be a rest period at which time 
each school will give a skit or some- 
thing similar. 

In the afternoon the winning teams 
of the morning will play each other 
and the losers will play. In this way 
each team will play two games. All 
the girls will be guests of the W. A. 
A. in the evening. Miss Gabb, a mem- 
ber of the Philadelphia Hockey Club, 
will be speaker. She will give the girls 
tips on playing the game. 

The girls are anticipating a suc- 
cessful day. Play days promote friend- 
ship between schools and also give 
all a chance to learn much about 

The Committees for the day are as 
follows. All the girls are working-

most able leader was Luther Immler 
with Dean Aungst acting as master 
of ceremonies. A chalk talk by Da- 
vid Lenker added a bit of color to 
the already pleasing melodies of the 
orchestra taken from the motion pic- 
tures, "Showboat" and "Carefree." 

Following this session of sophisti- 
cated rhythm was the Clio Fashion 
Show of the clothes the well dressed 
college girl is wearing. Through the 
courtesy of the Bon Ton Department 
Store, of Lebanon, smart styles in 
sports dresses, hats, and coats and in 
evening dresses and wraps were mod- 
eled by various members of the soci- 
ety. In the interlude between the 
showing of the sportswear and the ev- 
ening wear, Amy Meinhardt enter- 
tained with a piano selection, Debus- 
sy's "A Minor Prelude." The com- 
mentator, Amy Monteith, gave a few 
comments on each ensemble pointing 
out the special fashion features in 

Adding a bit of nonsense to the pro- 
gram, Delphian presented a comic al- 
legorical pantomime in three scenes 
entitled, "Bluebeard's Wife," by Jane 
Elliott. The leads were played by Ed- 
na Rutherford, Myrtle Leff, Barbara 
Bowman, Alice Richie, and Laurene 
Dreas. Other society members gave 
them support in minor roles. The

campus Utopia 

The annual rushing season is over 
for another year and members of each 
society will again renew and revive 
old friendships that have apparently 
been non-existent during the "rush" 
season. It will be a relief on all sides 
to see activities and relationships re- 
turn to normalcy again. With the 
period of pressure past, a period so 
marked with nasty cutting words that 
do no one good, a period so catalogued 
by its underhand methods and insinu- 
ations, it will be relaxation to feel 
free to talk when and where one 
chooses. In a word, we are all glad 
it's over. 

Is it not possible, however, that, 
with this necessary period ended, the 
societies could continue their activi- 
ties on throughout the year instead 
of lapsing into their usual smug self- 
satisfied shell of inactivity? Instead 
of being dormant throughout the year 
why not have several innovations in 
society life? Almost every other 
school, where there exist organiza- 
tions similar to our literary societies, 
we find annually a weekend set aside 
for a joint program of all groups con- 
cerned. In some schools, this weekend 
is known as the Pan-Hellenic Week- 
end. The main features of these week- 
ends are informal entertainments or 
programs by each individual group 
and a climax affair known as the Pan- 
Hellenic Ball. 

From the end of the first semester 
here at Lebanon Valley until the Del- 
phian Anniversary, there are no acti- 
vities whatsoever. Is it too much to 
hope that the four societies could for- 
get any differences and join to pro- 
mote an Inter-Society Ball? In this 
proposition could be worked out, are 
we too idealistic in hoping to see joint 
meetings between Kalo and Philo and 
likewise between Delphian and Clio? 
Maybe we would have the campus 
turned into a Utopia ; but it is possible 
and we would like to see it exist on 
the Lebanon Valley campus. 

rally around 
the team 

Every year there is much talk about 
traditions or lack of traditions at 
Lebanon Valley College. Many of us 
are prone to think that aside from 
the murder scene of a few weeks past 
and the back walk privilege there 
are few existing traditions here on 
the campus- To these skeptics we wish 
to point out another — that one is the 
Albright game. 

If there is anything about L. V. C. 
that is traditional, anything that is 
talked about every time two L. V. 
alumni meet, it is the Albright game. 
This year feelings are running high 
on the campus as the day of this con- 
test approaches. For the first time in 

years there is an apparent spark of 
life in the student body. The reason 
for the unprecedented spirit is no 
doubt the fact that chances of win- 
ning this game are higher than they 
have been in the past three years. 
Realizing that the possibilities for 
victory on Saturday are bright, ev- 
ery student on the campus is making 
or should make some effort to display 
his spirit and rally around the team. 

The appearance on Monday morn- 
ing of that BEAT ALBRIGHT sign 
on the flag pole of the Administra- 
tion Building has apparently start- 
ed the ball rolling. Congratulations 
to the daring souls whose spirit and 
ingenuity made this feat possible. The 
result of this flag-raising has been 
the mushroom-like growth of similar 
signs and posters on the Men's Dor- 
mitory. This outward manifestation 
of school spirit needs two things to 
complete the program — first, full sup- 
port of the student body at the pep 
meeting and dance on Friday night; 
and second, the appearance of five 
hundred (500) Blue and White root- 
ers at Reading this coming Saturday 
to root the boys under the wire a win- 

To every student, we voice this plea 
to rally round the team, show your 
colors and support our boys with the 
rooting that they justly deserve. Don't 
be a slacker. No one likes a slacker 
especially when we want to Beat Al- 
bright. Let's say, "All right, Albright, 
Albright, here we come, try and stop 

I L. V. Stage 

On next Wednesday night comes 
"Tovarich." The two act dramatic 
vehicle will probably prove to be the 
most laughable, lovable and dramatic 
production ever seen on the Lebanon 
Valley boards. Practically every line 
will have a punch. There will be 
laughs galore, there will be tears for 
your hankies in this story of the two 
exiled Russian aristocrats. 

o — o — o — o — o 

Due to bashfulness and out of con- 
sideration for Miss Jean Marbarger, 
the love scenes with Dean Aungst 
were only begun to be rehearsed tms 
past Tuesday. Let it suffice to say 
that Mr. Aungst has stated his re- 
grets that this action has been so 
long delayed. 

o — o — o — o — o 

This play and its rehearsals have 
been a downright pleasure from be- 
ginning to end for the entire cast. 
Robert "Dutch" Hackman, king of 
comedians, has at all times held the 
group of board-trotters in stitches 
which helped no end in relieving the 
tension which goes with rehearsing a 
play. There has been no sign of tem- 
permanent among the cast thus far. 
Smooth rehearsing has been the key- 
note of the successes which we are 
sure this play will have. So we 
leave you with the thought that if the 
Astor can beat "Tovarich" out next 
Wednesday nite, then the time has 
come for L. V. to drop dramatic en- 
deavors. Let's all be in Engle Con- 
servatory for a thoroughly enjoyable 
evening. The price of admission 
won't make you dig too deep, but the 
play will make you dig deep — deep 
into your seats — with its laughs, 
tears and tense moments. We'll see 

"Dear Brutus" the Junior offering 
for the year is still in the infant 
stages of production but it is being 
whipped into shape at good rate. Due 
to rehearsals of "Tovarich" which cast 
contains a few important members of 
"Dear Brutus" the same has not had 
very many rehearsals. There'll be 
more said about "Dear Brutus" later. 

O O O — o 

Don't forget — "Tovarich" — next 
Wednesday night. You won't re- 
gret it if you see it — you will if you 
miss it. 


By Proboscis 
Time for the weekly splurge again, 
kids, and if you care for this as little 
as we care for taking time off from 
exams to write it, nobody will read 
the darn thing — including us. 

The question now before the house 
is, Who took the song books out of 
the chapel Monday morning ? Who- 
ever the culprit may be, he or she has 
so far been eminently successful in 
keeping his (and, to be consistent, 
her) identity a secret. However, Mar- 
ianne seemed not to mind as, with a 
flippant toss of her head, she tartly 
declared that the didn't care. Get- 
ting tough, eh? 

* # * 

Some of the foulest discards ever 
to masquerade under the name of 
music broke ruthlessly upon our de- 
fenseless ears on Monday night. Ani- 
mal and plant life about the campus, 
to say nothing of those few conscien- 
tious studes who were studying, aged 
ten years before the impact of the 
blaLt — that's how bad it was. 

* * * 

Further investigation disclosed the 
fact that the noise was emanating 
from a group of well-meaning but 
heartless creatures who were return- 
ing from a play practice in the chap- 
el. Thereupon the thought occurred 
to us that it is indeed a boon that 
whatever the play is that they're 
working on is not an operetta. We 
can picture the entire Conserv having 

dilations of the heart.

A prof, whom we know, in imprud-

Accent on the second syllable, in 
case you missed it. 

In a few more days the scars will 
have healed and the knives put back 
on the shelf for another year. Fel- 
lowship will be rife again — when? In 
a few days. Why? Because rushing 
season is over, and with it much of 
the seasonal animosity which it en- 
genders. Personally, we're glad

The eight o'clock section in Bible 
82 the other morning found themsel- 
ves in the enviable position of having 
no blue-books in which to write what 
we suspect would have been skimpy 
answers to the exam for which they 
were scheduled. It appears that Dr. 
Shettel had overlooked such a trifling 
matter, and consequently the tribula- 
tion was called off. But, as usual, 
there's a catch to it — they go to bat 

tomorrow morning. 

* * * 

On Saturday afternoon will come to 
pass another renewal of that ancient 
rivalry, the L. V. C. -Albright feud. 
Famous hereabouts these many years, 
this year's game is looked forward to 
with particular interest for several 
reasons, the chief of which is that 
this season the teams appear to be 
more evenly matched that they have 

been for some years yet. 

* * * 

Proboscis has violently unpleasant 
memories of one Richard Riffle, who 
endeared himself forever to Albright 
fans and conversely made himself ex- 
tremely odious to Valley followers by 
virtue of his having played the lead 
role in three successive trimmings 
handed the Dutchmen by the Red & 

* * * 

Now the aforesaid Mr. Riffle no 
longer grazes in the Reading pastures 
which hurts our feelings not one whit. 
In fact, we are even now devoutly hop- 
ing that his absence will be the fac- 
tor which will turn the tables in fav- 
or of the Blue and White and send us 
home to Annville happy, though 

All of which we inflict on you by 
way of saying that our hearts ar$ 
gladdened no end to see the enthu s . 
iasm which is being manifested ot) 
the campus. We toast the courageou s 
soul who hung a banner on the A4 
Building flag pole; and our congrats 
also to whoever has put out sign s 
from the room windows in the dorms, 
It all helps. 

Proboscis urges every student to 
help win this game — by cheering with 
might and main at the chapel pep. 
meeting on Friday morning, by mak- 
ing plenty of noise at the dance Frj. 
day night and, above all, by going 
to the game and ROOTING!! Our 
best wishes to the team — BEAT AL 

. Awhile ago mention was made of 
the gag put over by some wiseacre in 
chapel the other A. M. Possibly some 
of our gentle readers noticed also on 
the same morning that the front 
curtain drop was unusually low. If 
so, you may not know that therein 
hangs a tale — an alligator's tale. The 
early arrivals among the faculty were 
surprised, to say the least, to see one 
of the scaly critters dangling from a 
rope above the stage. 

* * * 

Proboscis has been inquiring around 
of late and has learned that ringing 
church bells is definitely forbidden. 
The Germans weren't supposed to go 
through Belgium, either — unless they 
got away with it. 

Our congratulations to the juniors 
on the fine progress that is being 
made on their year-book. A bang-up 
staff under the capable leadership of 
untiring Carl "Scoopey-Doop" Ehr- 
hart has made rapid strides toward 
an early completion of what should 
be a swell little publication. Keep it 
up, boys 'n gals!

Kress Leads Dutchmen 
To Fifth Straight Win 
As Foes Crumble 20-7 

Coming back strong in the second 
halt' L- V. C. scored two touchdowns

hard fighting Susquehanna team 20-7, 
n a rain drenched field at Selins- 

ove last Saturday, and to continue 
their winning ways making it five 

Entering the game highly favored, 
t he Valleyites played their sloppiest 
game of the season and were treated 
to a score when they saw a 6-0 lead 
turn into a 7-6 deficit. Before the 
spectators had settled down to enjoy 
the second half, the Dutchmen had 
tallied a touchdown, and shortly af- 
terwards came through with another 
one to put the game on ice. 

The Valley scored in the first seven 
minutes of play with a brand of foot- 
ball that had featured the Valley's 
games to date. Chris Walk caught a 
Crusade punt on his own 10 yard line 
and raced to mid field before he was 
forced out of bounds. After failing to 
gain through the line, Kress tossed 
an aerial to Frey who later aled to 
Lennon for a first down on the Cru- 
sader 30. Kress tossed another pass, 
this time to Walk who was downed 
on the six yard line. Lennon smashed 
through the center for five and a half 
yards. Kress lugged the oval across 
on another line buck. Walk's place- 
ment was low and wide. 

At the beginning of the second 
quarter, Coach Frock sent in his re- 
serves. After several punt exchanges, 
Schillo booted a nice kick which just 
missed going out of bounds on the 
one inch line. With the ball on his 
own 20 yard line, little Bobby Bas- 
tress, Susquehanna's backfield, raced 
80 yards on an off tackle smash, be- 
ing aided by some nice blocking by 
his mates. Lewis booted a perfect 
placement for the extra point making 
the score 7-6 in favor of the Crusad- 

Lebanon Valley tried vainly to score 
in the remaining minutes of the first 
half, but all their attempts were 
thwarted by a hard fighting Susque- 
hanna team that had visions of de- 
feating the Flying Dutchmen. When 
the half ended the Blue and White 
had the ball on the Susquehanna 37 
yard marker. 

Starting the second half with the 
varsity again on the field, the Flying 
Dutchmen completely dominated the 
situation scoring two touchdowns and 
two extra points before the crowd 
realized that the warm-up period had 

Walk kicked off for L. V. C. After 
failing to gain, Susquehanna's Bas- 
tress kicked to Kress who failed to 
get away from the bounding ball, and 
as a result the Crusaders recovered 
° n the Blue and White 40 yard line. 

n the next play, Kress intercepted 
j. pass °n his own two and returned 
to the 41 yard stripe. Kress cut 
° a tackle and ran to the Susquehan- 
tV^ ^ After Kress only gained a yard

interference, dashed over tackle for 
11 yards and a score. Lennon kicked 
the extra point. 

The final score came shortly after- 
wards when Eddie Kress ran over 
tackle to the Susequehanna 27. Len- 
non gained a yard on a reverse. A 
pass Kress to Grabusky to Belmer 
was good for a first down on the Cru- 
saders' 11 yard line. With Kress and 
Lennon alternating, they advanced 
the ball to the 2 yard line from where 
Kress pushed it across. Lennon's 
placement was again good and the 
score was 20-7 in favor of the Valley. 

Again Coach Frock sent in his re- 
serves. This time, however, the lads 
had more punch and kept pushing 
Susquehanna all over the field, al- 
though they failed to score them- 

Kress' ball carrying was the high 
spot of the afternoon. Schillo, Len- 
non, and Walk showed their ability, 
whenever they had the pigskin. Up 
front in the line Bosnyak, Frank Roz- 
man, Grabusky, and Belmer were the 
best bets. For Coach Stagg there was 
only one man. He was Bob Bastress, 
155 pound halfback, who showed his 
heels to the Valley lads several times.

(Continued from Page 1) 

Through The Ether 
With The Dutchman 

The lads didn't look too good in 
spite of their three touchdown drives. 
Susquehanna, a typical Hartwick 
team, should have been taking over a 
bigger score. Let's hope that the boys 
were priming themselves for Albright. 

Eddie Kress again showed that he 
was a "money" player. His consistent 
ground gaining when the Valley was 
behind branded him as one of the best 
backs in these parts. 

A new place kicker was unearthed 
on Saturday when Frankie Lennon 
stepped to the fore and booted two 
perfect extra points between the up- 

Coach Stagg's offense was the most 
peculiar witnessed this year. It was 
a spread formation that had the Blue 
and White bewildered for quite a 

Hats off to Bob Bastress, the scrap- 
py little Susquehanna halfback. His 
running and all round ability was the 
only thing that kept the Crusaders 
in the game. 

Speaking of scrappiness, the Sus- 
quehanna team had it in more ways 
than one. They must be boxing ma- 
jors up there, because they continual- 
ly wanted to indulge in fisticuffs, but 
our lads refrained. 

Penalties are our biggest hazard in 
a game. If the Dutchmen don't watch 
out they'll be on the short end of a 
score because of them. 

hipped left halfback should be ready 
for action and raring to go by Satur- 
day. Coach Lone Star Dietz looks for 
great things from Mario and he will 
probably see them in the tussle Sat- 
urday. Soja, the dependable signal- 
caller, is a sure starter. DeLorenzo 
is another halfback who is really good. 
He shares the kicking duties with 
Johnson, a burly tackle. Duke, 
Schreck, and Czajkowski are others 
in the backfield who can be relied up- 
on to furnish plenty of push. 

Captain Mike Bonner plays the part 
of a good leader at the left end posi- 
tion. An interesting side light can 
be noted here, for the rival captains, 
Bob Brown and Bonner, will face each 
other at the terminal posts. Johnson, 
in addition to his kicking perform- 
ances, turns in a well-played game at 
tackle. Gostitus, the left guard, is 
sometimes featured as a ball carrier 
in a version of the guards-back play. 
Robson is a tower of strength at the 
center post. Wielgolinski versatilely 
plays either right guard or center as 
the situation demands. Zanot and Mc- 
Crann are two steady guards. Van 
Tosh adds strength at the center po- 
sition. Hydock is a powerful tackle. 
McFadden, Thorpe, and Snyder are 
equally expert ends. The big question 
mark on the Albright team is Dick 
Westgate. Whether or not the injured 
tackle will play is problematical, but 
it is certain that he will provide plen- 
ty of trouble if he does see action. 

On the other hand, "Gloomy" Jerry 
Frock has a team that many a coach 
envies. The passing attack of Leba- 
non Valley this year has been above 
expectations. Jerry has a great line, 
a speedy backfield, and an all around 
good combination. The same starting 
line-up which, with minor exceptions, 
has started every game this season 
will probably begin on Saturday. Leb- 
anon Valley will pin its hopes on a 
quick start and a whale of a defense. 

The traditional battle with Albright 
which will be renewed on Saturday is 
one of the oldest rivalries in Pennsyl- 
vania, dating back to 1902. Since its 
inception way back in the third year 
of the present century, nineteen bat- 
tles have been waged. Lebanon Val- 
ley has won nine, Albright has won 
eight, and two have resulted in ties. 

It is interesting to note that since 
the Lions moved from Myerstown to 
Reading, Valley has only once been 
able to prevail. One game since then 
was a 6-6 tie. Albright moved to Read- 
ing in 1929 and the change evidently 
helped her football. The game has 
been played annually since 1924. Be- 
tween 1902 and 1923 only five games 
were played, two of them in 1912. In 
that year, L. V. C. won the first game, 
10-7, and Albright conquered the sec- 
ond contest, 20-7. 

In the entire series Lebanon Valley 
has outscored Albright, 216-168. The 
Valley total was boosted considerably 
by a 48-0 win in 1919 and a 41-0 vic- 
tory in 1925. The worst pounding 
ever dealt the Dutchmen by Albright 
came in 1931 when the score was 19-0. 
So it is quite evident that the rivalry 
throughout has been very evenly 
matched and all indications point to 
a characteristic scrap on Saturday.

Dance Band Review 

by Shedd McWilliams 

This week we take up a band which, 
while it has been in existence only 
eight months, has already attained 
some degree of prominence in the 
eastern states. In addition, it's fame 
is beginning to spread. Because 
yours truly believes that this band 
gives promise of great things to come, 
we present to you GLEN MILLER 

This band is Glen's second, the first 
having been broken up due to man- 
agement difficulties. The maestro 
himself, is no newcomer to the game 
as a trombonist and as an arranger. 
He played an important part as or- 
ganizer, instrumentalist and arrang- 
er in the old Dorsey Brothers' out- 
fit; later skipping to Ray Noble's 

At the present this is one of the 
best of the newer bands. The credit 
goes to Miller not only because he is 
the leader but also because he does 
practically all of the arranging. If 
you will notice his unique style of 
scoring for one clarinet and four 
saxes; and the moving background 
figures he writes for the brass, to be 
played into hats, you will get a good 
idea of the swell style which he and 
his boys are working upon. 

The brass section, consisting of five 
men, phrase together, attach together, 
and have nice tones. Miller some- 
times modifies the section by playing 
lead trombone thus making it a sex- 
tet which is quite solid. 

The sax section is also solid, and 
has an exceptionally fine blend which 
will be hard to beat. 

Last but not least is the rhythm 
section. The three fellows which 
make up this group play very well 
behind the sweet arrangement and 
give a very "sending" lift to the 
swingier tunes causing the band to 
slide into some solid "grooves" from 
which it pours forth some beautiful 

The soloists in the band are not tc 
be forgotten. Miller, himself, plays a 
very mean "slip" horn and really gets 
off on some very tricky "licks." Wee 
Willie Schwartz plays a mighty fine 
clarinet, with an original style, while 
Tex Beneke blurts out some fairly 
nice passages on the tenor sax. 

If you have ever seen Glen Miller's 
orchestra you will notice that the boys 
in the group are all nice looking fel- 
lows, and to go a little farther 1 
might add that if you have ever talk- 
ed to any of the fellows in the band 
you will find that they have very 
pleasing personalities. That is some- 
thing which quite a few of the "big 
time boys" lack.

The Hyperboreans 

By Panoptes 

The practice teachers are having 
the usual problems with their Hom- 
ers, Henriettas, and Lizzies. Dorothy 
— or should we say Miss Null? — is 
very busy preparing assignments, 
grading papers, and performing all 
of the other little duties of the in- 
genue teacher. Miss Johnson, Miss 
Swope, Miss Lopes, and Miss Lem- 
inger have similar problems, we un- 

Shirk recently took a French test 
in a classroom where the test was 
being reviewed. Will he get an "A"? 

Touchy Touchstone wishes to in- 
form the girls that she believes her- 
self quite capable of handling her own 
private affairs, especially those mat- 
ters of the heart. 

Having actually put a nickel in the 
candy machine in the men's day-stu- 
dent room, Whitman was heard to 
exclaim, "What! Only one?" 

A denizen of the deep named Fox 
has a weighty problem he wishes 
solved. "Where would an oyster swim, 
if an oyster would only swim?" 

The female Hyperboreans are try- 
ing hard to identify Panoptes' spy in 
their midst, but so far their guesses 
have not even been warm. Remem- 
ber, girls, that Panoptes has a hun- 
dred eyes. Have you looked for any 
holes in the wall? 

It is rumored — indeed, it seems to 
be a fact — that one well-known couple 
on campus are betrothed. Perhaps 
this is even an understatement. (Don t 
get us wrong; we merely meant tnat 
there may be more than one such cou- 

A preacher's son last week proved 
that it is still possible to shock some 
of the Hyperboreans. You should have 
seen his expression when he was lis- 
tening to one of our literary men re- 
viewing Ulysses by James Joyce. 
(No, it isn't in the Lebanon Valley 
College Library. We've looked-. 

Panoptes' Personal Psychological 
Probe: What day-men are associated 
with the following words? Rabbits, 
pan-handling, pinochle, six-foot elec- 
tric fans, Boy Scouts, Trinitarian, or- 
thodox Economics. Typical responses 
were Deck, Kantor, Lynch, Derr, Pow- 
ell, Zimmerman, Hamm. 

Merle Bacastow had better keep an 
eye on those rehearsals of Dear Bru- 
tus. Wert was telling us how worn- 
out he feels after embracing Louise 
Saylor. (It's an the script). When 
the drama is produced on campus, the- 
ater-viewers will probably report an 
astounding degree of realism, at least 
in this particular scene. 

The day-studentettes couldn't have 
been referring to any of our profs, 
could they? Teachers, they said, 
should not chew toothpicks in class, 
for this may advertise the fact that 
they had a good lunch while we had 
only a couple of dry sandwiches. A 
better impression also could be made 
by a teacher, they think, if he did not 
slouch in a chair with hands propped 
back of his head and in shirt-sleeves. 
Innocent of such indignities as our 
profs are, they should not take of- 
fense at the remarks of the hyper- 
critical Hyperboreans. 

Only in the day-student room would 
originate such an idea as the organi- 
zation of non-society men. Maybe 
Ripley could use this one, for it's 

This week we adopt Dr. Reynolds 
into the membership of the Hyper- 
boreans in order to relate how, in 
History of Education class, he pulled 
a fast one. Discussing drunkenness 
among students of medieval univer- 
sities, he solemnly said, "There seems 
to be a hangover of this in our uni- 
versities even today." 

By and large, in the main, on the 
whole Panoptes believes this covers 
the last week's escapades of the day-

To The Al umni-- 
Lebanon Valley College 

By the direction of the Execu- 
tive Committee of the Alumni As- 
sociation a new system for collect- 
ing the annual dues has been in- 
stituted. Hereafter each Alumnus 
will be billed in January of each 
year instead of May. Thus the pay- 
ments of the annual dues will be 
separated from the payment of the 
annual banquet fee. 

The secretary has prepared a 
membership card which will be 
issued to each Alumnus just as 
soon as the annual dues are receiv- 
ed. These membership cards will 
be dated for each calendar year. 

It is hoped that under this re- 
vised system of payment of dues a 
greater number of graduates of 
the college will affiliate with the 
Alumni Association. As no organi- 
zation can function effectively 
without a sound financial backing, 
it is the responsibility of each 
Alumnus to forward promptly the 
amount of the yearly dues — two 
dollars. Our sister colleges have 
successful and active Alumni As- 
sociations simply because they are 
collecting dues from a larger per- 
centage of their Alumni than Leba- 
non Valley has ever been able to 
collect. With a more generous 
financial support our Association 
will be able to function on a par 
with the best. So forward immedi- 
ately your check or money order in 
the amount of two dollars, and re- 
ceive in return mail your member- 
ship card for 1939. This action on 
your part will enable us to con- 
tinue publishing the Alumni News 
regularly, and to undertake some 
of the projects proposed at the last 
meeting of the Alumni Council.

Lifting Book Lids 

Once upon a time I read an article 
in the Reader's Digest about a man 
who didn't send his daughter to col- 
lege. In fact, she didn't even finish 
high school, but she stayed at home 
and read books. He said that she 
could carry on a more intelligent con- 
versation than most college graduates 
he knew, and he was sure it was be- 
cause she stayed at home and read 
books. Now that strikes me as a very 
nice way of acquiring an education. 
I like to learn things, but this busi- 
ness of hurry, hurry, hurry, you've a 
term paper to write, a whole play to 
read, a report for history, etc., etc., 
ad infinitum, strikes me as being all 
wrong. My particular idea of heaven 
on earth is a nice little house with 
a big library and a gorgeous modern 
kitchen. My kitchen would have every 
imaginable ingredient; my library 
would contain every book I have ever 
longed to read. I would browse away 
amid my books, with occasional time 
out for concocting a new recipe. 

Some of the books I'd want have 
just come into our library. Sailor On 
Horseback by Irving Stone, is a fas- 
cinating biography of Jack London. 
It's a true story, but far more fasci- 
nating than fiction. Then there is 
Carl van Doren's Benjamin Franklin. 
Take note, students of History 42. 
This is absolutely new, bigger and 
better than any previous biography 
of one of our most famous American 

With Malice toward Some, by Mar- 
garet Halsey, has been recommended 
by several persons, including an Eng- 
lish professor. It's the diary of the 
wife of a professor who went to Eng- 
land to study, and it's altogether new, 
different, and funny. But when it's 
ready to be taken out, / get it first. 
I asked. So you'll have to wait.

After they had yanked his tail hither and yon to no avail for three peri-

the regular meeting of the Chemis- 
try Club held last Tuesday evening 
in the chemistry lecture room of the

Ben Goodman in the first student 
report talked on the uses of strontium 
in industry. As a background for his 
talk he discussed the chemical and 
physical properties of the metal itself, 
its common and important minerals, 
and the preparation of strontium 
salts from the minerals. Strontium 
salts were found to play a part in 
industries ranging from pyrotechny to 
sugar refining. Handling the topic he 
had chosen in a similar manner, Mar- 
tin Hoffman presented the story of

ers, who were not favored to win, 
put up a stalwart fight and outplayed 
their opponents during the entire 
game, but Albright got the breaks and 
came through in the clinches to nose 
them out. 

The Frockmen started a brilliant 
running attack while the fracas was

The Lebanon Valley College Ath- 
letic Field will be the scene of the 
traditional Soph-Frosh football game 
shortly after the close of the regular 
season. With each class needing a 
victory in this event to clinch the hon- 
ors of the traditional series of Soph- 
Frosh activities, a spirited battle is 
anticipated by the entire student body. 
The recent victory scored by the soph- 
omores in the tug-of-war, as well as 
their experience, seems to point to- 
ward a win for the second-year men. 

This year's battle will be staged by 
the Men's Senate, according to tra- 
dition. The coaches for the two teams 
have been appointed by this body, and 
the rules for the game have been con- 
sidered at a recent Senate meeting. 
Chris Walk and Coda Sponaugle will 
act as mentors for the frosh, while 
Robert Brown and Frank Kuhn will 
tutor the sophs. Walk is beginning 
his third year as class coach and is 
seeking his third consecutive win. His 
previous elevens, composed both years 
of members of the class of '40, won 
7-6 and 21-0 victories in this annual 
fuss. Coach Brown is rounding out 
his fourth term as tutor and has yet 
to taste victory. His squads suffered 
21-0, 7-6, and 21-0 defeats since he 

took over the coaching job. 

The squads are apparently evenly 
matched with the only statistics on 
which to base any comparisons being 
the results of recent touch football 
contests in which the frosh outscored 
their rivals. Both sides will undoubt- 
edly feature aerial attacks. Walk's 
usual deception and wide-open foot- 
ball will be readily adapted to speedy 
freshmen who apparently have an 
edge in speed. Laterals and tricky 
reverses will be the main part of their 
offense. Brown's style of play which 
has been altered frequently during 
the last three years is unpredictable. 
Last year he used his famed, man- 
in-motion offense, with little success. 

Coaches for both teams have ex- 
pressed great optimism as to the out- 
come of the battle. Chris Walk, frosh 
coach, made the following statement 
when queried about his squad: "As 
yet I have received very little cooper- 
ation from the fellows in the class. 
Without a doubt these freshmen have 
great possibilities if they will only 
come out to practice to smooth out 
the rough spots. In my three years of 
coaching class teams here on the cam- 
pus, I have never seen class spirit 
run so low. However, if the mem- 
bers of the team come to the daily 
workouts these last few days before 
the game, they can be whipped into 

temporary American scene which is 
known as the little theatre, hailed by 
some as the white hope of the spoken 
drama, and by others as one of the 
strongest arguments in favor of the 
existence of a degree of congenital 
juvenility in the breast of the Amer 
ican adult. 

Be that as it may, the little theatre 
has been making itself manifest here 
at Lebanon Valley for some years in 
the shape of the Wig and Buckle, 
which has done some things of which 
the less said the better, and also not 
a few things that incline me to think 
that all is not futile in amateur thea- 
tricals. It is to this latter category 
that their decision to produce Tovar- 
ich, I think, may properly be said to 
belong, although it can not be denied 
that certain aspects of their decision 
are regrettable. 

The play Tovarich is technically 
brilliant, if somewhat deficient artis- 
tically, for it combines the elements 
of good entertainment with a deftness 
worthy of the mighty Elizabethans, 
withal missing at least one excellent 
opportunity to drop the final curtain 
without that drop-curtain effect so 
deadenly typical of the average Broad- 
way success. However, this is a point 
which well might be debatable. 

What is not debatable, though, is 
the fact that, for the successful pro- 
duction of this play, a technical com- 
petence is required of the cast that

Ehrhart Discusses 
Late Quittie Plans 

Although photography has played 
the most important part thus far in 
the preparation of the 1940 Quittie, 
the editor-in-chief, Carl Ehrhart, stat- 
ed today that the literary work would 
be begun in the near future. The lat- 
ter will include the individual write- 
ups of the juniors, the write-ups of 
the various organizations, the athletic 
record and features. Lillian Leisey is 
literary-editor of the publication. 

Ehrhart reports about 180 studio 
portraits taken, 15 groups, and about 
30 individual athletes photographed 
during the photographer's stay on the 
campus three weeks ago. There re- 
main but a few individual pictures to 
be taken. 

At present negotiations are under- 
way for the purchase of covex*s for the 
year book. Although the matter has 
not definitely been decided upon, it is 
promised that this year's cover idea 
and plan will be absolutely new as 
far as Quitties are concerned.

60 Girls Participate 
In Annual Play Day 

Shippensburg Team 
Winner In W. A. A. 
Hockey Field Day 

Last Saturday the Lebanon Valley 
College hockey team acted the perfect 
hostess to three visiting teams when 
they bowed twice to their guests in 
hockey tilts held in conjunction with 
the W. A. A. play day. The day fea- 
tured four games, two in the morn- 
ing, and two in the afternoon between 
the two winners and two losers of the 
morning contests. 

In the forenoon the local lassies fell 
before a speedy Shippensburg offense 
oy the score of 3-0. Immediately fol- 
lowing this game the Cedar Crest 
Jollege team defeated their opponents 
from Susquehanna University by a 
score of 4-0. Shippensburg downed 
Cedar Crest 3-0 in the winners tilt 
after lunch; while L. V. again tasted 
defeat at the hands of the S. U. las- 
sies 5-2. Approximately sixty girls 
100k part in the play day. 

Following the morning contests 
lunch was served in the college dining 
hall. At this time each school pre- 
sented a short skit. This entertain- 
ment took the place of the usual 
hockey talks which have been typical 
of previous play days. Cedar Crest's 
offering was a version of the old fav- 
orite "Down by the Old Mill Stream" 
wim variations. Shippensburg pre- 
sented a novel love story in which 
most of the action and scenes were 
described by songs sung by a chorus

progressed and developed, and spread 
out to the vocabulary of other races 
and other peoples. 

Following the talk the members of 
the Club spent the remainder of time 
in the consideration of a number of 
plays which had been suggested for 
the annual stage presentation. Among 
others were Der Moder, and Panne 
von Alt Heidelberg.

There seems to be a general opin- 
ion among the men dormitory stu- 
dents that the governing body, the 
Men's Senate, is rather insignificant 
so far as its powers of disciplining 
students are concerned. This idea has 
come to a head recently when it was 
found that those above were flooding 
the place so that it dripped on those 
below. The Senate has been accused 
of not taking steps in the matter, but 
may it be understood that they are 
powerless to make any advance in 
this matter, or in any other, unless 
they have full cooperation of the stu- 
dent body. 

The Senate, reviewing these facts 
at a recent meeting, has decided upon 
a course of action which may become 
quite severe for those concerned, and 
will only become evident if the prac- 
tice continues. However, if the men 
who are offended by any other stu- 
dent or students do not give the sen- 
ate evidence of their displeasure, the 
matter will go on as before. 

Then, above all, what the governing 
body urges is full cooperation first, 
in the matter of water-throwing be- 
cause they can surely realize the harm 
it will do. Not only do they urge such 
cooperation in the matter mentioned 
above, but in all ensuing troubles 
which confront students. May they 
be discussed before the Senate rather 
than in private conference where hate 
is bred rather than peace. 

wake up, sophs 

For the past three weeks the Stu- 
dent-Faculty Council has been trying 
to complete its organization and get 
down to work on some of the many 
problems that have arisen recently 
on the campus. In the past this body 
has been very active and has made 
many worthwhile recommendations to 
the administration. In student govern- 
ment! this body is on a par with both 
the Men's Senate and the W. S. G. A., 
and yet this year it has been unable 
to function because the Sophomore 
Class has not elected their representa- 
tives to the group. For weeks this 
lack of class spirit and interest has 
interrupted the service that this body 
renders to the students. 

How about it, sophs, do you want 
representation or do you want to be 
out in the cold? If you are not inter- 
ested enough to elect your representa- 
tives, why don't you drop the matter 
entirely and allow the Council to com- 
plete its work? Perhaps you would 
prefer to govern yourselves or maybe 
you would rather just drift along and 
be a hindrance rather than an aid to 

the student welfare. Why not snap 
out of these dreams of yours and do 
something for a change? You can 
surely spare a few minutes to attend 
a class meeting and elect these officers 
sometime before the end of the school 

those huns 


Attila was a gentleman! Perhaps 
that declaration is a bit startling to 
the ears of people accustomed to 
hearing him denounced as the most 
cruel and blood-thirsty barbarian the 
world has ever known. Indeed, he 
was called "the Scourge of God," and 
it is true that he has left behind him 
a tale of pillage and destruction, of 
person and property unparalleled in 
history, that is, up until A. H., anno 
Hitlero, 1938. But, it is about time 
that a word is put in for Attila, a 
word which might also serve to de- 
fend one emperor, Nero by name, who 
likewise has been a synonym for ter- 

For there are certain things that 
can be said on behaif of Attna. No 
one is so grossly evil that there is 
not a single reoeemmg leature aoout 
mm, and Attna is no exception, he 
murdered and devastated, long and 
often, but his victim always had a 
chance to escape, it they had a strong 
and last pony. It was every man for 
nimseit and devil take tne hinder- 
most. But today under the mass per- 
secution of the new Hun, Aooiph rat- 
ter, tne slogan has cnanged to every 
jew for the devil and the devil take 
all. Their late in Germany is sealed. 
All avenues of employment are Clos- 
ed; they cannot leave. And even ii 
they could, no country wants them, 
ueath is the only solution, although 
uhey can have tne choice oi death at 
tneir own hands or at that of their 

Secondly, Attila never made any 
coniession of a desire for peace and 
xnendiy social relations, much the 
iess sign any solemn document to- 
ward that end and then just as delib- 
erately break it. Tnat ne was total- 
ly illiterate is beside the point. ]No 
thought of building up an ideal, per- 
fectly organized state ever skirtea 
the perfectly smooth surface of his 
cerebrum. As old Jack Falbtaff he 
thought it no crime "to labour in his 
vocation," be it purse-snatching on an 
individual or racial scale, or a more 
serious piece of mischief. That is to 
say, he never cabed a bloody reign of 
terror "a purge for the best inter- 
ests of the state." He was hardly that 
euphemistic, and he was no hypocrite 
either, incidentally. Attila never felt 
obliged to set up a swastika as a 
front for his terrorism. He spared 
the whitewash and for that very re- 
straint deserves proper credit. 

Perhaps, Attila the Hun and Hitler 
the Hun can find more in common 
than they can find in difference, but 
what difference there is, is in favor 
of Attila!

An Excellent Example For The 

Recently the Alumni Secretary 
received a check in payment of the 
annual dues in the Alumni Asso- 
ciation from Mr. W. S. Ebersole, 
class of 1885. 

Mr. Ebersole is located at Mount 
Vernon, Iowa. He has rendered a 
long and valuable service at Mount 
Vernon College. It is very inspir- 
ing to the officers of the Alumni 
Association to receive the support 
of one who has not lost his inter- 
est in his Alma Mater, although 
more than half a century has 
passed since he was graduated. 
What a fine example he sets for 
the more recent graduates.

Uppermost in the minds of all of 
us must still be the nightmarish vision 
of the game at Albright last Satur- 
day. Before two o'clock on the fatal 
day optimism reigned — a few short 
hours later gloom was the keynote of 
the day.

The conclusion reached by Probos- 
cis on the more general aspects of the 
disaster was well summed up in the 
succinct words uttered by our own 
President Lynch in chapel on Monday 
morning — the Dutchmen did play the 
better game.

It is not, however, our wish to de- 
tract from the intensity of the halo 
of glory which now surmounts the 
beaming, although somewhat batter- 
ed, brow of the Albright Lion. The 
Reading lads waited for the breaks; 
and, having received them, wasted no 
time in settling the issue. In short, 
they "seen their duty, and they done

thought, we think we speak for all

heart and soul behind our gridders;

From' all indications the frosh-soph 
football war, to be staged in a few 
weeks, will be hard-fought, with the 
winner as yet difficult to predict. 
Both teams have been practicing with 
likely squads — of the two, the 
greenies seem to have the stronger 
lineup on paper, but then those sophs 
fooled us in the tug and there's no 
telling what may happen.

Another time — hallowed custom 
was revived last Friday night when 
various upper-classmen and freshmen, 
armed with clubs of varied size, shape, 
and potency guarded the campus 
from invasion by the vandals of Al- 
bright. According to reports from 
Reading their efforts were more ef- 
fective than those of the Red and 
White boys.

At last some of the Jekyll-and-

have been revealed as they really are.

"What fools these mortals be!" 

How many people go through life 
missing the beautious things God has 
poured into this world. How many 
people stick their heads out the front 
door at night, take one look at the 
sky, duck back into their mechanized 
cell and say "It looks like rain for 
tomorrow." Fools, fools all of them. 
Why don't you linger a minute, five 
minutes and drink in the beauty of 
the cotton-white, fluffy clouds, a float- 
ing bed for the silver drop moon? The 
clouds are wrinkled like a toasted 
marshmallow. They make you want 
to have wings to fly to that round, 
white disc. They make you want to 
fly up, up like the wind, ever up 
through their softness. You can al- 
most feel them draping you with their 
heavenly mist, cool quiet, calm. Once 
you were in those clouds you could 
rest in their bosom and laugh joyfully 
at the stars that twinkle like a baby's

t sC ore of the game. Reddinger 
dded the extra point from placement. 
a ^ few minutes later, Albright capi 
talizeC l on another break to put the 

ne on ice. Aszman punted to Kress 
^rho did not attempt to catch the ball' 
but elected to play it safe. The ball 
bounced crazily, striking Kress on the 
knee before he could dodge it. Cap- 
tain Mike Bonner dived on the ball 
alertly to gain possession for Albright 
on the Valley 15. This greatly demor- 
alized the Frockmen and enabled Har- 
r y DeLorenzo to score in two plays. 
First, he circled the end for ten yards 
and then he hurdled the line for five 
more and the winning score. He also 
added the extra point with a nice 

At this point, Lebanon Valley re- 
leased a passing attack that carried 
her to a last-minute touchdown. Af- 
ter several aerials went haywire, 
Kress faded back as if to pass, but 
instead quickly reversed and scooted 
for a first down. Schillo then ad- 
vanced the ball to the enemy 48. From 
there, Kress threw a long pass to 
Schillo who leaped up in the midst 
of three Albright men to snare the 
pass on the defenders' 14. Schillo then 
faked a run and lateraled back to 
Kress playing wide. Kress then tossed 
a beautiful pass to Captain Brown 
who pulled it down in the end zone 
for a touchdown. On the play after 
touchdown, Walk pretended a place- 
kick, but instead passed to Frey for 
the final point. 

Clever strategy enabled the Dutch- 
men to hold the edge throughout the 
fray. Albright, watching for the 
vaunted Valley passing attack, saw 
instead well-drilled running plays in- 
terspersed with timely passes. That 
Albright was able to bat down or •in- 
tercept some of these passes is what 
won her the game. 

L. V. C. gained nine first downs to 
Albright's six. She also outgained her 
rival on the ground and through the 
air. But the breaks went the other 
way and the weaker team prevailed. 

The game was packed with typical 
Lebanon Valley - Albright color. Both 
teams made some beautiful defensive 
stands. Kress, Schillo, Lennon, and 
Walk starred in the L. V. C. back 
field, while Belmer, Frey, Bulota, and 
Brown turned in some nice defensive 
work in the line. Warnageris, De- 
Lorenzo, Soja, and Captain Bonner 
were the big guns for the Crimson 
and White.

is apparently beyond the capacity of 
most amateur and some professional 
groups by whom I have seen it per- 
formed. It is therefore with no half- 
hearted feelings that I commend the 
performances of several of the per- 
sons who took part in last night's 
production. I liked particularly the 
finish displayed by Mr. Robert Hack- 
man in the role of Cliarles Dupont, 
who, many times saved the scene with 
his never-failing competence. In large 
measure, the same thing is also true 
of the performance of Dean Aungst 
in the lead, although a perhaps too 
meticulous regard for truth compels 
me to state that Mr. Aungst has done 
better things. It is all very true that 
his — Mr. Aungst's — last act was noth- 
ing short of superb, and that, as a 
rule, his timing was perfect. Never- 
theless, the part of Mikail is a good 
part largely because of certain deli- 
cate nuances which he ignored, espe- 
cially in the first and second scenes. 
He missed much of the comedy inher- 
ent in the disappearance of his rheu- 
matism and, as somebody has pointed 
out to me, all of it in his telephone 
call to M. Chaufourier-dubieff for M. 
Dupont. Mr. Aungst might do well to 
remember that it is one thing to act 
with restrain, but quite another to do 
so with phlegm. Nevertheless, I hope 
my admiration of his manifest ability 
to avoid the Scylla of hamminess 
which he showed greatly to the ad- 
vantage of both himself and the play 
will remove for him most of the sting 
of the foregoing condemnation of his 
failure to avoid the Charbydis I have 
alluded to. 

Mr. Tschop performed perfectly, I 
think, in the role of Gorotschenko. 
There was nothing about his perform- 
ance with which it is possible to find 
fault, for he interpreted a consumat- 
edly difficult if equally excellent part 
with the utmost in feeling, dexterity, 
and finish. I salute him. 

I regret, however, being unable to 
say the same thing of Bill Bender 
whose appearance perfectly fitted his 
excellent role, but for whose perform- 
ance the facts of the case compel me 
to award him le Grand Prix de Jam- 
bon which is given at least once in ev- 
ery production for thorough and out- 
standing exemplification of the im- 
mortal tradition of jambonerie. And 
mo re's the pity, justice compels me 
to admit that he might well share the 
distinction with the rest of the cast 
not heretofore mentioned. 

So much for the actors as such; 
however, the complete summation of 
a play is not given without some re- 
mains on certain other matters, such 
as direction, which, in this case, for 
the most part reflects credit upon Dr. 
Struble, who succeeded in giving the 
show a pleasingly rapid pace, that 
happens to be absolutely essential to 
the success of Tovarich, and helpful 
to almost any play, although it is us- 
ually missing in Lebanon Valley 

When I say that the pace was good, 
I mean that it was as good as the dic- 
tion was bad — and that is very bad 
indeed. All the characters were in- 
variably absolutely sloppy in this 
matter; in fact, had I not seen the 
play several times before, it would 
have been quite impossible for me to 
guess at what was being said, as it 
apparently was for many persons in 
the audience who seemed to be miss- 
ing many of the laughs. Several times 
the front of the house was having a 
quiet joke all to itself which was not 
communicated to the back seats. And, 
if I were strictly pedantic, I might 
carp quite a bit over the fact that 
fete should rhyme with net rather 
than ate. 

The scenery and properties, too, 

were rather dreary, which was, how- 
ever, a negative factor that is appar- 
ently difficult to overcome under the 
conditions with which the Wig and 
Buckle finds it necessary to get along. 
Therefore I commend their industry 
rather than condemn their deficiencies 
in this regard. 

Here, then, is Tovarich. What shall 
the final word upon it be? Some per- 
haps would desire me to remember 
that it was, after all, an amateur pro- 
duction. To them I reply that the 
performance was such as would make 
it impossible for me to forget its non- 
professional character. However, it 
was one of the best, and, on the whole, 
most successful amateur productions 
I have seen for many a long moon. 


Lifting Book Lids 


Come all ye good Pennsylvania 
Dutchmen to the library and get a 
book about yourselves. There are 
quite a few, both fiction and non- 
fiction. Last week I wrote about Ann 
Hark's Hex Marks the Spot, but the 
demon called "ye ed" censored it for 
some unknown reason. So this week 
I'll try again. The author started out 

trying to find the meaning of those 
hex symbols to be found on everything 
from barns to baptismal certificates. 
She ended with this book, which 
treats rather completely and very 
amusingly the Pennsylvania Dutch 
people (all right, you pedants — Penn. 
Germans) call no. 974.8193 nh. 225h. 

One of my favorite writers of 
fiction is Elsie Singmaster, whose 
theme is almost invariably — you've 
guessed it. The library has one

you like them, use the Reader's Guide 
to hunt up stories she has had pub- 
lished in magazines. Call no. F Si 64b.

Delta Lambda Sigma 

The Opening Tea of Delta Lambda 
Sigma Literary Society was held yes- 
terday afternoon at 4:30 in Delphian 
Hall for the new pledges, the women 
of the faculty, and the old members. 
An informal talk on Delphi, Greece, 
given by Dr. Lietzau, was the main 
feature of the program. Further en- 
tertainment took the form of a piano 
solo rendered by Edna Rutherford. 

Mrs. M. L. Stokes and Mrs. S. O. 
Grimm poured the tea. They were as- 
sisted in the serving by the Sopho- 
more Delphian members under whose 
direction the tea was planned. The 
wooden wall plaques which were giv- 
en as favors were designed by David 
Lenker and painted by the committee 
in charge.

At a special Delphian meeting call- 
ed Monday noon, November 14, sev- 
eral clauses in the Constitution of the 
society were amended by a majority 
vote of the members, both new and 
old. The membership which had been 
restricted to include only fifty girls 
will henceforth have no limitations.

Kappa Lambda Sigma 

The first degree was given the new 
members of the Kalozetean Literary 
Society on Friday, November 11, anu 
the forty-two who had pledged them- 
selves were ready to take second 
degree Tuesday. The instructions were 
given and the pledges appeared wear- 
ing boxing gloves, coats inside-out, 
rolling hoops, carrying dolls, and 
dragging tin cans. This seems to have 
been the best fun for all excepting 
the faculty who immediately frowned 
on such antics. 

The spirit of these new pledges will 
reach its climax probably tonight 
when the "terrible" third degree will 
be given in the gymnasium at 8:00 
o'clock. Since the group would be too 
large, it has been decided to take the 
non-football players first and have the 
football men receive their "paddling" 
sometime later.

Phi Lambda Sigma 

On Monday evening, November 21, 
the new members of Phi Lambda Sig- 
ma will be physically introduced to 
the society when the third degree will 
be administered. The first and sec- 
ond degrees were given to the pledges 
at a special ceremony held last Mon- 
day in Philo Hall. President Ray- 
mond Smith had charge of the induc- 
tion ritual. 

At this same meeting William Ben- 
der, chairman of the Executive Com 
mittee, was selected to head the ini- 
tiation committee. The arrangements 
for the final "dreaded" third degree 
were intrusted to this committee. As 
usual, the affair will be staged in 
Philo Hall.

Hyperboreans of both sexes partici- 
pated last week in heated arguments 
concerning the recent election, but no 
agreement could be attained. That the 
Democrats had had a shorter period 
to "apply their dirt" than the one 
Republicans enjoyed in the past was 
the only exception. Day-student wo- 
men reached this conclusion without 
scratching or pulling of hair. 

Baron Barnhart was an enthusias- 
tic correspondent last week, anticipat- 
ing as he was the sublime pleasure of 
sitting in enemy territory at the 
game. George seemed more interest- 
ed in a certain Albright fan than in 
the forthcoming battle itself. 

Tjurning from football to anagrams, 
Panoptes understands that this game 
is at present the day-studentettes' fa- 
vorite sport. 

Are you interested in cycles — busi- 
ness, bi-, or motor-? Well, Anna Ev- 
ans' family has its own particular 
kind of cycle. It seems that one broth- 
er is a minister; a sister, a nurse; a 
brother-in-law, a doctor; and another 
brother-in-law, an undertaker. 

Having just returned Bible 82 ex- 
amination papers, Dr. Shettel amused 
some of the day students by exclaim- 
ing, "What's burning? (sniff, sniff). 
Somebody hot over his paper?" 

A Palmyra inhabitant named Shenk 
was seen doing his bit to make last 
Friday morning's pep meeting a gala 
occasion. For a confetti-like effect, 
he dropped paper schnitz from the 
oalcony at the psychological moment. 

The girls have made frequent re- 
quests for soap, towels, and other 
small articles needed in the D. S. R. 
Dissatisfied with the quantity of in- 
difference that these requisitions have 
received in the past, they have hand- 
ed a list of necessary supplies to the 
W. S. G. A. this year. "Will results 
be forthcoming?" wonder the waiting 
women, who point out that they are 
annually assessed three dollars per 
capita for just such items as these. 

Dr. Stokes was telling about an au- 
tomobile salesman who quoted a price 
of ii>850 on a particular car. "1 laugh- 
ed at him," said the proiessor. me 
salesman asked how much the Econ- 
omist would pay, and Dr. Stokes said, 
"$500." At this point in the story, 
Bowman quacked, "And then he 
laughed at you." 

Excuse Panoptes' unexpected ter- 
mination of this week's report at this 
point — here comes that punchboard 
panhandler making his rounds again. 
Nice day, Nathan? What do I care n 
the highest price is 29c? 

Robert Dinsmore was piaced in charge 
of this work with all the members of 
the society on a working committee. 
Samples have been received and an 
active sales promotion will begin late 
this week.

Kappa Lambda Nu 

The initiation of new members into 
Clio will be characterized this year 
by new, original ordeals. The sopho- 
more members, who have charge of 
the rites, have successfully wracked 
their brains for novel methods of in- 
duction, so that this initiation will 
probably be the stiffest ever given. 
The informal initiation will begin on 
Friday afternoon at four-thirty in 
front of North Hall. All who pos- 
sibly can are urged to be present, for 
Clio promises a good show. Friday 
evening at seven-thirty the formal in- 
itiation and the greater part of the 
informal ordeals will be completed in 
Clio Hall. All pledges must be pres- 
ent and sophomore members are asked 
to be there for the installation. The 
informal initiation will be completed 
during the following week. The new 
members will be given instructions 
concerning this on Friday night. The 
Clionian Tea for new society members 
has been postponed until after

Dutchmen Humble Foe 
In Season s Grid Final 

Indians Surrender 6-0; 
Valleyites Outplay Rivals 

Battering their opponents merci- 
lessly from beginning to end, Leba- 
non Valley College's "Flying Dutch- 
men" routed the Juniata "Indians" in 
every department but the score. It 
was a third period pass, Kress to 
Frey, that gave the chilled and rain 
soaked Annville lads a 6-0 verdict. 

In ringing down the curtain on 
their most successful season, Coach 
Frock's boys displayed offensive pow- 
er that will be remembered by Hunt- 
ingdon fans for time to come. Al- 
though the score reads only 6-0, the 
Dutchmen completely annihilated the 
Juniata squad. 

After receiving the opening kick- 
off, Juniata started off on what seem-

a formal hall meeting at which at-

Lecturer Wears Native Dress Of Chi 

Tour Through China 
Is Topic Of Whites 
Chapel Lecture 

In an illustrated lecture on the top- 
ic, "With the Camera in An Enchant- 
ed Empire," James Henry White at- 
tempted to show to the Lebanon Val- 
ley College student body the soul of 
China in its artistry and literature, 
and the daily life of the Chinese peo- 
ple. The beautifully tinted slides 
which were projected on the screen, 
and the large number of paintings 
and pictures which were on display 
in the chapel revealed many phases 
of Chinese life. Each picture bore a 
hand carved frame and a bit of versa 
typical of the literature of China. 

Mr. White, wearing the ordinary 
dress suit of a Chinese gentleman, 
spoke of his problem as that of mak- 
ing us here in America understand 
China sympathetically and respect- 
fully. He said that we usually think 
of China as an uncivilized nation, but 
if we were to judge the civilizations 
of the world according to art and lit- 
erature China would be considered one 
of the most civilized nations. 

He, then, started on an imaginary 
tour to the various points of interest 
in China which he himself had visited 
during his eight year stay in China 
as an educator. Beginning with views 
of the Great Wall of China, Mr. 
White showed the massive structure 
from the top of one of its many tow- 
ers at the crest of an almost perpen- 
dicular hill, and pointed out its ser- 
pentine course as it rolled over hills 
and valleys in its 1,800 miles of end- 
less winding. 

Peking was the next stop. The wall 
of the city is sixty feet high accord- 
ing to the lecturer, while at the cor- 
ners in the wall are towers which con- 
tain platforms for mounting war en- 
gines. The one-time defensive moat 
encircling the city was shown as a 
popular picnic and boating spot. The 
gates through which entrance is gain- 
ed to Peking are colorful and exact- 
ly ninety-nine feet high. This pre-

A.A.U.W Holds 

ustrated Talk 
On Chinese Arts 

Dr. James Henry White presented 
an illustrated lecture, "A Trip to 
China's Wonderland," under the au- 
spices of the A. A. U. W. in Engle 
Hall on Tuesday evening. 

Dr. White, educator, who lived in 
China for eight years, went there 
"unprepared to teach and stayed to 
learn." The architecture, color, and 
form of the country and its art so 
impressed him and his brother that 
they attempted to capture them in 
photography. By looking beyond the 
sordid surface of China its abundance 
in art, literature, and philosophy be- 
came more and more intriguing. He 
oh owed this inspiration of China's 
joets and artists in his vividly color- 
ed pictures of the playground of the 

The lecturer displayed ceramics of 
great depth of coloring, picturing 
many ancient legends. The Chinese, 
the inventors of this porcelain glaze, 
revealed their manipulative power, in- 
stinct for form and ornament, and 
sense of color in their specimens. It 
was exposed that the art of this land 
pictures objects of definite meanings 
by the translation of some of their 

He displayed slides of many jade 
carvings proving why this people is 
considered foremost in that field. One 
portrayed a white jade pagoda which 
is held to be the most wonderful 
wox-k of this kind in the world. 

In the illustrations of Confucius' 
birthplace, and the emperor's sacrifi- 
cial altar their skill in marble carving 
was evident while bronze castings 
more than three thousand years old 
were pictured to prove them artists 
in this line. 

A few of Sung's pictures, which 
many rank above those of European 
artists, were represented on slides 
showing, on their dull silk back- 
grounds, the finest of Chinese paint- 
ings. Dr. White explained that one

Clios Complete Anniversary Plans 

The Clionian Literary Society will 
celebrate their sixty-seventh anniver- 
sary at a formal dance Saturday, De- 
cember 3, at eight o'clock at the Ho- 
tel Hershey, Hershey, Penna. Plans 
for the formal affair have been rush- 
ed to completion during the vacation 
period; and Arlene Hoffman, Anniver- 
sary President, has announced that 
all arrangements have been made for 
the affair. 

As for the past three years the 
beautiful Hotel Hershey has been se- 
lected by the society as the scene for 
their annual formal. Perched on the 
crest of the rolling hills north of the 
"Chocolate City" this elaborate struc- 
ture, with its beautiful lounge and 
spacious ball room will serve as a fit- 
ting place for celebration. 

The orchestra committee has made 
known their choice which is none oth- 
er than the currently popular Don 
Peebles and his orchestra. This group 
of musicians have been the hit of 
winter dance season in Harrisburg 
and vicinity. They will be remember- 
ed by many students who attended 
last year's Senior Ball, as the easy, 
smooth rhythm makers on that occa- 
sion. The favors have been selected 
and will be announced the eve of the 

The chaperones for the dance, who 

will also be the guests of the society,

Youth Wants Peace 

Men Old Enough To Fire Bullets 
But Too Young To Cast Ballots 
Should Form Lobbying Group

general opinion of the campus, and it 
gives the outsider an accurate picture 
of that attitude. If similar polls 
could be conducted at other universi- 
ties the composite results should be 
significant to the legislators in whose 
hands the question of peace and war 
lies. The voice of such a large num- 
ber of people surely can not be ig- 
nored, especially when all of them will 
be voting by 1941. 

(Editor's Note — This editorial b y 
George Skinner, editor of the Miami 
Student, student publication of Miami 
University , is printed in cooperation with 
that writer's attempt to arouse the youth 
of America to their possiblities as an in- 
fluence on the side of world peace.) 

The European pot of oil has stopped 
bubbling temporarily, but when it re- 
sumes its eruption later, it will be ne 
cessary for it to splatter a long way 
to scald the youth of America. A poll 
of student opinion concerning war 
conducted yesterday by THE MIAMI 
STUDENT, showed that a large ma 
jority would not fight on foreign soil 
but that an even greater majority 
would not hesitate a jot to defend 
these United States in case of foreign 

On the whole, the poll revealed a 
surprisingly sensible attitude on the 
part of the students. Fallowing neith 
er extreme, they chose a middle course 
which, if followed, would do much to 
keep America from participating in 
European conflicts. 

0:0 0:0 0:0 

Such an opinion on the part of the 
younger people of this nation should 
not be construed as a tendency to dis- 
regard a duty to the government. It 
is merely the rational reaction to a 
grave situation. Although youth does 
not remember any previous war, the 
echoes of screaming soldiers are ring- 
ing in its ears, and it is natural that 
these young educated people should 
not be anxious to sacrifice themselves 
upon the altar of another useless mas- 

0:0 0:0 0:0 

But the opinion of youth is not 
weighed heavily enough by the direc- 
tors of our democracy. The same men 
who are considered old enough to 
bear arms are not considered mature 
enough to vote on whether or not they 
should be risked at war. Young men 
from the age of 18 to 21, while not 
entitled to an official voice in decid- 
ing upon war, are expected to do 
much of the actual fighting in case 
the older men choose to protect our 
interests abroad.

We do not advocate nor expect a 
revision in American suffrage, nor do 
we maintain that minors should be 
invested with legal rights — tradition 
is too strong to yield for many years. 
What we would like to see is an or- 
ganization of the youth of America 
into a vast lobbying group which 
could exert its influence on issues af- 
fecting young people as directly as 
does the war question. It might be 
likened to a glorified labor union, bar- 
gaining for lives instead of wages.

ENT in its survey. It represents the 


By Proboscis 

Greetings and salutations to all you 
turkey-munchers after what seems to 
have been, generally speaking, a sin- 
gularly unimpressive vacation! 

* * * * 

If you have as tough a time getting 
down to business as we've had, the 
three weeks from now until the 16th 
of December will scarcely give us time 
to get settled until we truck home 
again. Vacations shouldn't come so 
close together — there's the Dutch in 
us again!! 

* * * * 
Personally, Proboscis spent a large 

part of his vacation digging himself 
out of the blanket of snow which al- 
most covered his place of hibernation. 
The stuff WAS pretty— but it impedes 
travel, to say nothing of providing 
work for vacationing college students. 

* * * * 

Illustrative of the fact that there 
are still some who believe in working 
hard during rest periods is the story 
of "Wee Willie" Scherfel. It seems 
that William did nothing during his 
vacation except eat, sleep and study — 
we didn't believe it either, but one 
look at his strained, bloodshot eyes 

convinced us. 

* * * * 

Our next item, a holdover from the 
last days before we went home for 
Thanksgiving, should be of interest 
to all residents of the Men's Dorm. 
The very fact that they have allowed 
such a condition to exist on the cam- 
pus for two and a half months is in- 
dicative of the low state to which 
their amatory endeavors have fallen. 

The boys must be slipping. 

* * * * 

It has come to the attention of 
Proboscis that in the course of a re- 
cent North Hall bull session there was 
made the incredible, but staunchly af- 
firmed, discovery that living within 
the confines of said North Hall are 
two lassies who to date have never 
been — come on, Egbert, out with it — 

* * * * 

Now Proboscis is a true romanti- 
cist, and when this shocking state of 
affairs was made known to him he 
promptly resolved that something 
should be done about it. He hopes that 
the boys will wake up and take the 
matter out of his hands; if not — well, 
this just cannot go on. Inquiries are 
being made in the other girls' dorms 
to discover the extent of the phenom- 
enon — as it is now, the campus mas- 
culinity seems to be at a low ebb. 

* * * * 

Our best wishes this week to Gert 
Gutstein, whose vacation was made 
memorable by the arrival of his par- 
ents from Germany. Their's is a sor- 
did story, but even so we'll bet that 
their escape (and it amounts to that) 
is a source of constant regret to Der 
Fuehrer — also called the Bogeyman 

and, occasionally, Adolf Hitler. 

* * * * 

The last-named is, to the best of 
our knowledge, a member of that pe- 
culiar species found in only a few 
countries today, known as DICTA 
TORIS VULGARIS. The creature is 
characterized by a great deal of neck- 
craning and jaw- jutting; its only vo- 

cal manifestation is a loud squawk 
(sometimes a fierce but harmless 
rumble in the throat); and it lives 
wherever putrefaction is taking 
place. As a consequence of this last 
habit, it is followed wherever it goes 

by a most awful stink. 

* * * * 

Probably this is a good place, while 
we're all "steamed up" over the do- 
ings of the Teutonic Maniac, to insert 
a brief comment on the newsreel we 
saw the other night. The subject of 
the reel was Dr. Eduard Benes, for- 
mer president of Czechoslovakia; an- 
other classic example, with Haile 
Selassie, of the many great and good 
men who have been run down by the 
Juggernaut of Power steered (we 
wonder about that, too) by Hitler, 
Mussolini, and the other pug-uglies 
with whom they chum around. 

* * * * 

The contrast between the face of 
Dr. Benes, in which is reflected sanity 
and common-sense knowledge of the 
world's problems, and those of the 
goose-stepping double-crossers who 
belong to the so-called Rome-Berlin 
axis, whose snarling mouths and 
beetling brows are not quite success 
ful in covering up the stark stare of 
insane lust which is inevitably pres- 
ent, is a startling one. You can take 
your choice; this is one instance in 
which Proboscis is going to be vio- 
lently narrow-minded. 

But getting into our own back-yard 
again, we notice that the old soup- 
and-fish will be much in evidence on 
Saturday night, when Clio's star will 
be in the ascendant. All indications 
point to a swell time for all — looks 
like a merry crew to us. 

Here's an invite, or possibly a bet- 
ter term might be reminder, to the re- 
cital tonight in Engle Hall. Those of 
us who have heard Prof. Campbell 
play before will need no urging; those 
for whom this will be the first oppor- 
tunity will do well to take advantage 
of it. Faculty recitals are always 
worthy of our interest. 

We hear that the freshman-sopho- 
more gridiron epic is definitely sched- 
uled for Saturday — whether morning 
or afternoon, we have not yet found 
out. At any rate, this promises to be 
a real battle, so here's luck to both 
teams, and may the better bunch 

any of Sir James Barrie's writings 
will agree that he has an elfin touch 
which eventually favorably impresses 
the reader. You may not like The 
Little Minister at first, but you will 
keep on reading; eventually you will 
become firmly convinced of its great- 
ness. So try this one. 

In case you're interested, you can 
ramble through the stack at will. May- 
be you will find something even bet- 
ter than those I have listed. 

That's all for this week.

Surprise At Party 

(Continued from Page 1) 

recitations and readings given, and 
pranks were played with rubber 
bands, spit balls, thumb tacks and 
chewing gum as the equipment. And 
of course, there was the teacher's pet 
and the usual schoolroom romance. 

The fun of the evening was climax- 
ed by refreshments and dancing. The 
Freshmen who made the party such a 
success were Betty Gravell, Sara 
Hartman, Pauline Smee, Viola Snell, 
Gladys Parmer, Elizabeth Sattazahn, 
Marjorie Holly, Lorraine Kaufman, 
Mary Herr and Ruth Long.

Lifting Book Lid: 

Take note, gentle readers. I am re- 
forming again. From now on I will 
go over the stacks (cant: bookshelves 
to the uninitiate) systematically. 
Starting with fiction, I shall recom- 
mend books which I consider read- 

I wonder if there is anyone on the 
campus who has not read Little Wo- 
men; I imagine it is possible that 
there are a few benighted heathen 
who have not seen the light. Miss Al- 
cott's novels are, in general, well writ- 
ten; Little Women is a classic, and 
few indeed are persons who have not 
read it at least once. (Personal com- 
ment — I read it at least once every 
year) . 

Two novelists who used the life of 
Lincoln as a theme have gained a 
measure of fame. I refer to Bernie 
Babcock and Irving Bacheller. The 
Soul of Ann Rutledge (Babcock), 
Light in the Clearing (Bacheller), 
and A Man For the Ages (Bacheller) 
are all fascinating. The Soul of Ann 
Rutledge, in particular, has a poig- 
nant charm which intrigues the read-

Campus Politics 

When it comes to devising vote-buying 
political platforms, Californians have 
nothing on Rhode Island State College 

In the annual campaign for "cam- 
pus mayor," the candidates offered 
everything from the elimination of 
final examination to free gasoline for 
all student-driven cars. 

Their words speak louder than ours, 
so here are just a few sample plat- 
forms proposed in the seven-sided 

Ralph "Buck" Bucci, the "student- 
ism candidate for the singing mayor 
of Kingston", promised: 

1. Lectures in rhythm — swing ses- 
sions in all classes. 

2. Free dances every other night 
(refreshments served) — alternate 
nights left open for petting. 

3. Free date bureau — partners pro- 
duced to order. 

4. No paddling of freshmen. 

5. No more exams. 

6. No more failures. 

7. Honor privileges to all. 

8. Upholstered and air-conditioned 
chairs everywhere. 

9. Refreshments and tobacco served 
in classes. 

10. Suspension of Saturday classes. 
Wee Willie Wilcox, the "Dog Patch" 

candidate, went "Buck" one or two 
better, with this platform: 

1. The use of a Lincoln Zephyr or 
Model T at the rate of 10c a week un- 
der the Socialized Car Users Associ- 
ation Act. 

2. Instead of exams, a final gala 
week of sprees from the proceeds of 
the accumulation of the $2 day 

3. $30 every "blue 
"wet" Friday. 

4. Open subsidization of athletes. 

5. No corsages at college dances. 

6. Every day a "Sadie Hawkins" 

7. Preserved turnips for everyone. 

8. Swing sessions at all assemblies 
with famous bands instead of dry 

9. Greased flag-pole fight between 
freshmen and sophomores. 

10. Free hurricane insurance for all 
professors over "80". 

11. No more curfew for co-eds. 

12. One cent sale at the book store 
every Sunday; One cent sale at Giro's 
every Tuesday. 

13. Free postage to all 

14. A full moon once a month

Before I go any further, per^ 
some of you "campu s jitterbugs 
would be interested in knowing th a * 
Les's younger brother, Warren, J 
tended L. V. C. for a short time^ 
fore going to New York to carry 0l 
his study of music. As some of y 0t 
know Warren Brown was a veryfin f 
trombone player. 

About three months ago Les decid- 
ed to start a new band. He acquis 
all new musicians except two or three 
which he retained from the original 
'Blue Devils," and built a new, big. 
ger and better outfit. You can hear 
Les and his boys broadcasting even 
Saturday evening from the Hotei 
Edison over a N. B. C. wire by tunin; 
into WJZ at 6:30 o'clock. 

Les writes most of the arrangt 
ments for the band and also feature 
himself on the clarinet. Although fe 
playing is a little "corny" at time 
and he seems to struggle through 
last few bars of his chourses, he k 
improved a great deal since he h 
been with his old outfit. 

Brown's new orchestra is noted fe 
its rhythm section, which is full an! 
solid all the time. The brass sectioi 
consisting of three trumpets and to 
trombones, features itself very «I 
by functioning together with solid at 
tack. As individuals some of the boy; 
in this section "get off" on some ver? 
nice "rides." The sax section is * 
weak point of the band. It contain* 
some very good men but they do J 
phrase and blend together. Being 
good individual musician is only ^ 
the job. One must have the abi! 
to play his instrument and be able 
function in accordance with the fl* 
of the players in his section, 
the boys in the sax section realize | 
condition which exists and remed; 
there will be a noted change in 
band. Wolf Tannenbaum Les' W 
sax man, play a very "mean ho^ 
He has a beautiful tone and M 
sweet numbers as well as he does 
"jam tunes." If any of you " 1C * 
remember the tenor sax solo he P 
ed on Larry Clinton's recording 
"Milenburg Joys," which was m J 
machine at our local ballroom 
quite some time, you will realize 
an outstanding musician he is 
Macky, Les's other tenor man 
good man but is sometimes out 
so-called "groove." 

The vocalists, Miriam Sa# 
Herb Muse, certainly add to W 
ganization. Miss Shaw while not 
one of the best female vocalist 
a very fine voice and has imp 1 " 
great deal since the first time 1 
her sing. You will probably 
more about her vocal work. 

Don't think from my critic^ 
Les Brown hasn't got a fine J 
This is, as far as I know, the *

This imposing array of grid stars 
would make any coach's heart seem

backfield comes close to the dream 
variety. The hard-charging line, too, 
would be an irresistable force if any 
small school could possibly gather 
such material at one time to com- 
plete the unit. 

In looking at that Juniata score, 
one would think that it was an excit- 
ing game. Well, watching the game 
completely erased this belief. The boys 
in the darker jerseys (L. V. C.) so 
thoroughly dominated the scene that 
lt was a shame to make Juniata stay 
out there on the field. 

The rain that so miserably spoiled

Grid Season Ends 
With Fine Record 

Six Victories Dim 
Two Losses In Resume 

In reviewing the grid season at 
Lebanon Valley, one can readily tell 
that the Blue and White colors waved 
this year through one of the best cam- 
paigns in several years. Lebanon Val- 
ley won Lix games and lost two for a 
win percentage of .750 which is an 
average that many teams envy. 

In reality, the two defeats were ex- 
cusable. The loss at F. & M. was due 
to nervousness and inexperience. As 
proof, look at the decisive L. V. C. 
rally in the final minutes of that fray. 
The other defeat by Albright was a 
moral victory. Valley outscored the 
Lions in first downs, ground gained 
by rushing, ground gained by passing, 
in fact, in everything except points. 
L. V. C. rolled up 135 points this sea- 
son to her opponents total of 74. From 
this it may be seen that Lebanon 
Valley had not a great defensive team 
but rather a great offensive team, a 
team that could push across points 
when they were most needed. 

L. V. C. began her season with the 
defeat by F. & M. as mentioned above. 
The score was 27-12. She then turn- 
ed around and nosed out Moravian, 
9-6. She now spanked helpless, half- 
hearted Hartwick to the tune of 53-0. 
By defeating the there-to-fore unde- 
feated St. Joseph's College, 13-7, the 
Flying Dutchmen gained real recog- 
nition in collegiate circles and also 
her greatest victory of the season. Af- 
ter trailing the Cadets of Penn Mili- 
tary College into the final minutes of 
the fray, the Dutchmen awakened and 
nosed out their rivals, 15-13. Plucky 
Susquehanna was no match for the 
Frockmen who easily disposed of her 
20-7. Then followed the dishearten- 
ing Albright defeat, 14-7. The Dutch- 
men came back, however, to nip out 
Juniata, 6-0, and complete the season. 

With the Juniata contest nine Sen- 
iors made their final appearance in 
Blue and White regalia. They are: — 
Captain Bob Brown, Ramie Frey, 
"Bull" Bulota, Bill Rakow, Ed Kress, 
Coda Sponaugle, Roy Weidman, Chris 
Walk and Frank Rozman. 

Perhaps the greatest reason for the 
high degree of success attained by the 
gridders this year was that the team 
was composed not of one or two stars 
but of eleven. Lebanon Valley did 
not have a Sid Luckman or Marshall 
Goldberg, but she did have a team 
that played together, won together, 
and lost together. 

Dutchmen Humble Foe 
In Season's Grid Final 

(Continued from Page 1) 

first downs on tricky reverses, Juni- 
ata was forced to kick on L. V. C.'s 
27 yard line. Captain Brown and 
Frank Rozman rushed through to 
block the kick and from then on it 
was all Lebanon Valley. 

Starting from their own 27, the 
Blue and White marched down the 
field to the Juniata 25 before they 
were stopped. After changing goals, 
the Valley again started a drive that 
was stopped on Juniata's 5 yard line 
where Kress just missed a first down 
by inches. The half ended when Ju- 
niata was trying to gain on L. V. C.'s 
26 yard line. 

Upon gaining possession of the ball 
for the first time in the second half, 
Kress threw a pass from his own 45 
to Frey on Juniata's 35. Running be- 
hind nice interference by Captain 
Brown, Frey raced over the goal line 
for the only score of the afternoon. 
The attempted extra point, a pass 
from Walk to Frey, was unsuccess- 

After that touchdown, the Indians 

never got beyond their own 20 yard 
line. On the other hand, the Dutch- 
men were unable to cross their oppo- 
nents' goal line. Time after time they 
drove down to Juniata's 10 yard line 
no fewer than five times, but the In- 
dians seemed to rise up to meet the 
charge when necessary. When the 
final whistle blew, the Valley led by 
Eddie Kress had just pounded out a 
first down on Juniata's three yard 

Again the outstanding performer 
was Eddie Kress who "handled the ma- 
jor part of the ball carrying duties. 
Out of 360 yards gained, Kress ac- 
counted for 185 yards personally. He 
was also instrumental in that touch- 
down play tossing the aerial to Frey. 

In this final contest, the seniors 
besides Kress who engaged in the tus- 
sle made their performance one that 
will not be quickly forgotten. Cap- 
tain Brown played his best, offensive- 
ly and defensively. Frank Rozman, 
Stanley Bulota, Coda Sponaugle, and 
Roy Weidman kept the Juniata line 
back on its heels all afternoon. Sam- 
my Vaughn and Bill Rakow handled 
their duties well while in action. Ray- 
mie Frey covered himself with glory, 
not only by his touchdown jaunt, but 
by his all around play.

The Hyperboreans 

By Panoptes 

Genius is being discovered among 
the Freshmen Hyperboreans. A typi- 
cal example is Wm. Mueller, who last 
week informed a professor as to the 
source of some substance. The pro- 
fessor, having worked at that partic- 
ular industry in the past, told Mueller 
that he must be mistaken. Mueller, 
with a smile upon his lips, then ex- 
claimed, "But the whole thing is Prof., 
you're wrong; I'm right." 

Another example of coming genius 
is found in Sam Gittlen. Recently 
Penoptes called Gittlen a stoic. Now 
must be added the title Master Poet, 
for no less than 3 of Gittlen's poems 
were published in the Lebanon County 
Boy Scouts' publication. . . . Beware, 
Longfellow ! 

Speaking about the Gittlens, Joe 
Gittlen was noticed thoughtfully re- 
moving his shoes and stockings, and 
then suddenly shouting, "Now try giv- 
ing me a hot-foot." . . . Tsk, Tsk, Tsk. 

Flash . . . Communism has sudden- 
ly hit the Men's D. S. R. The Mon- 
day before Thanksgiving, a general 
confiscation of lunches took place. 
Each lunch was laid out upon a table 
and the denizens preceded to help 
themselves. ... P. S. To the fellow 
who brought chocolate cake; . . . Tell 
your mother that it was very good. . . 
Hail Tovarisch! 

Panoptes is wondering whether the 
fuzz on Harold Moody's upper lip is 
a remnant of his last shave or wheth- 
er he is trying to raise a mustache. 

While on the subject of mustaches, 
Brubaker's sister thought he would 
look better with a mustache. To il- 
lustrate her point, she drew in mus- 
taches on his proofs and submitted 
them for approval. 

Your reporter was actually struck 
dumb, (no remarks please!) when he 
observed Bob Long, former editor of 
the "Quittie", wasting his time play- 
ing Pinochle. Beware, Bob! That's 
the first step off the path of virtue, 
and don't forget, double pinochle 
counts 30. 

It is seldom that Panoptes takes 
time out to ask a favor. However, 
puh-lease, Barnhart and Shapiro, to 
save further embarrassment, will you 
please place identification and claim 
tags on your respective parts of the 
Bender duet? Thank you.

will be conducted as in past years 
by the Y. W. C. A. and will include 
articles from Japan, Russia, and

must understand their mechanical 
methods and the spirit of the people 
to appreciate this art to the fullest 
extent. He also pointed out the fact 
that the Chinese designate increasing 
distance by placing and not by size, 
thus giving their paintings perspec- 
tive but no vanishing point. 

The speaker concluded the lecture 
by bringing out the natural beauty of 
the country on slides showing green 
valleys where sweet potatoes and rice 
grow, rugged hills, interesting rock 
formations, picturesque flagstone 
paths, and silvery bamboo groves. 

Junior Class Prepares 
Annual Stage Offering 

(Continued from Page 1) 

charge of the stage work for the 
more recent plays, is again handling 
this feature of the performance. 

"Dear Brutus," coming from the 
pen of the man who wrote "The Ad- 
mirable Crichton" junior play of three 
years ago, is in Barrie's most de- 
lightful vein of fantasy. In some ways 
reminiscent of "Peter Pan," perhaps 
his most famous play, it bases a fan- 
ciful and at best superficial plot on 
an elemental trait of human nature. 

The story of the play briefly is as 
follows: Our characters have been in- 
vited to spend Midsummer Eve, when 
strange things happen in unaccount- 
able ways, at the home of a myster- 
ious personage who is reputed to have 
lived on from Elizabethan days. They 
have in common the habit, so univer- 
sal among human frailties, of wish- 
ing for "another chance" when regret- 
ting their past follies. Oddly enough, 
yet quite in keeping with the spirit 
of the eerie events ascribed to Mid- 
summer Eve, they get the desired 
second chance. 

It is here, in his masterful conclus- 
ion, that Barrie drives home his point, 
leaving the onlooker feeling that he 
has been on a trip to fairyland; a feel- 
ing which is tempered, however, by 
the appreciation of the author's pur- 
pose. To reveal his point would be 
to spoil the play — and besides, it will 
have been made evident to all when 
the final curtain rings down on next 
Wednesday night. 

Delphians Plan Open 

On Saturday, Dec. 3, the Delta

the hours of 8 and 12. At this time 
the society hall will be thrown open 
to all men students who will be 
present on the campus at that time. 
There will be entertainment, re- 
freshments* games, and dancing. 

Tour Through China 
Is Topic Of White's 
Chapel Lecture 

(Continued from page 1) 

cision of measurement was explained 
by White when he said, "The Chinese 
people believe that angels fly at a 
height of exactly one hundred feet, 
and thus the gates are built one foot 
lower so that they will not bump their 

Following the views of the city 
wall which make Peking almost im- 
pregnable, Mr. White described the 
streets of the city and noted that they 
were famous for their straightness 
and great width. The unusual feature 
of these streets is the reversal of the 
location of sidewalks and roadway 
proper. The panorama view of the 
city showed it to be perfectly flat, 
and, since the houses are all one-story 
structures, the usual city skyline is 
missing at Peking. 

Glances into the modes of transpor- 
tation and the various occupations of 
the city were next in order. Every 
possible conveyance from the donkey 
on through the wheel-barrow and 

and rickshaw to the modern trolley 
car were shown. Insights into the 
manner of conducting business were 
oftained by watching a street barber 
at work. His traveling shop suggest- 
ed little overhead as did the outdoor 
restaurant. In the drug store a store 
of herbs, roots, and heads of animals 
were found as curatives for almost 
any known disease. The unique bam- 
boo cash register indicated the appar- 
ent genius of the race. 

Leaving Peking, Mr. White led the 
way to one of the world's beauty spots, 
The Hill of Gold — once the forbidden 
city, the home of China's mighty em- 
perors. The mile-square city was sur- 
rounded by the usual wall and towers. 
The gold appearance of the city is 
due to orange tiling on the curved 
roofs which reflected the Chinese ha- 
tred for straight lines. Passing 
through the Gateway of Heavenly 
Purity, Dr. White led the way to the 
beautiful dragon throne room with its 
ceiling tinted with the hues of a pea- 
cock's tail. 

The tour ended with a journey to 
the sixty million dollar summer pal-

Campbell Presents 
Varied Selections 
| n First Concert 

Large Crowd Attended 
Conservatory Annual 

The first faculty recital of the sea " 
on was attended by a splendid group 
of music lovers in Engle Hall on the 
evening of December first. 

P. Porter Campbell, organist pre- 
sented a varied program of organ 
music designed to exhibit the tonal 
resources of the organ as well as the 
technical proficiency of the artist. 

The opening part of the program 
consisted of five contrasting selections 
from classic composers. The first 
was a charming bit of writing in pas- 
torale style. It was a choral prelude 
on the hymn-tune "In Dulci Jubilo" 
by J. S. Bach. Following it was an- 
other choral prelude on Luther's "Em' 
Feste Burg." 

The Passacaglia of Buxtehude was, 
in the opinion of the writer, largely 
unappreciated because so miany list- 
eners do not know what to listen to 
in a Passacaglia. For the help of our 
readers we suggest that it is a dance 
in three quarter time written upon 
a theme which occurs in the bass. 
That's^what one must listen to — the 
is with its running figures in the 

The Martini Gavotte seemed to be 
enjoyed although, in the opinion of 
the writer, the oft-repeated theme in 
the number could have been better re- 
peated on more distinctly contrasting 
tonal colors rather than with the more 
subtle contrast of flutes in entirety. 

The lovely Toccata in C Major also 
by J. S. Bach closed the opening por- 
tion of the program. 

In the second half of the program

College Observes 
Memorial Service 
For Late Professor 

A special memorial service honor- 
ing the memory of the late Dr. Paul 
S. Wagner was held this morning in 
the college chapel at nine o'clock. Fac- 
ulty members and students alike join- 
ed in paying tribute to the former 
professor of mathematics and assist- 
ant to the president of the college 
whose death Monday morning came 
as a severe blow to the campus and 
all friends of the college. 

The program consisted of specia 1 
music and short memorial sketches by 
Dr. Shenk and others, and lasted un- 
til shortly before the time set for the 
funeral, which was held privately at 
the home. 

As a further mark of reverence, 
all morning classes following the ser- 
vice were suspended. Afternoon class- 
es met as usual.

Faculty Member 
Long Associated 
With Institution 

Students and professors of Lebanon 
Valley College were deeply grieved to 
learn of the death of Dr. Paul S. 
Wagner, former professor of mathe- 
matics and assistant to the president, 
which occured last Monday morning. 
Although not entirely unexpected be- 
cause of the serious turn his illness 
had taken recently, nevertheless, his 
passing away came as a distinct shock 
to all who knew him. 

Death came as a culmination to an 
illness of several years' duration, dur- 
ing which time he underwent several 
operations aimed at relieving a cere- 
bral ailment. Following the last of 
these his health was considerably im- 
proved, but hopes for his recovery 
were dashed when his condition gra- 
dually grew worse, and he relapsed 
into a coma from which he never 

Dr. Wagner was born on March 14, 
1896 at Hershey, Pennsylvania and 
was graduated from the Hershey 
High School in 1913. He received his 
A. B. degree in 1917 from Lebanon 
Valley College. Military service oc- 
cupied the next two years of his life, 
and then he took the position of head- 
master of the Franklin Day School in 
Baltimore, serving in this position 
until 1920. While here he took gradu- 
ate work in mathematics at Johns 
Hopkins University. 

Dr. Wagner came back to Lebanon 
Valley in 1920 to become instructor 
in mathematics for the next three 
years, pursuing summer graduate

however, the freshmen threatened 
several times, but as in many football 
games the breaks were the determin-

with sad hearts 

The hearts of the entire college 
community were deeply saddened this 
past week when it was learned that 
our beloved and esteemed professor 
and friend, Dr. Paul S. Wagner, had 
passed away. The lives of many have 
been dimmed upon the realization of 
the great and inestimable loss that 
this untimely death will be to all who 
knew him. Our sorrow is not so much 
sorrow for our friend's loss as for 
our own. We pity rather ourselves 
to be designed to continue our now 
meagre existence than him, for tri- 
umph has been his and his crown has 
been given him. 

Generation after generation of stu- 
dents here at Lebanon Valley have 
been influenced by the fortunate inti- 
mate contacts with uplifting person- 
ality of this man. His praises will 
be limited only by the narrow bounds 
of expressive language. Much will be 
said and written to express the tri- 
bute that is justly his, but the true 
and lasting memorials to his life will 
be the enriched lives of those who 
had been privileged to be the benefi- 
ciaries of his overflowing gifts of love 
and service. 

The ideal teacher, scholar, friend, 
gentleman, and Christian at all times 
Dr. Wagner will leave a deep and per- 
manent impression on all who knew 
him. Helpful, and kind, sympathetic 
and courteous to his pupils, their re- 
spect and love was so great that rath- 
er than hurt his sensitive soul by 
being negligent in preparing assign- 
ments in his beloved matematics they 
chose to remain absent from class 
until they were prepared. His own 
diligence in the pursuit of knowledge 
in his chosen field made him the mod- 
el scholar and laid the foundation for 
his brilliant success in the classroom. 

As friend and gentleman none ex- 
celled him. Considerate of those about 
him on every occasion, Dr. Wagner's 
place in the confidence of the students 
will be hard to fill. Next to his pu- 
pils, the college athletes will probably 
miss most his friendly counsel and 
helping hand, for he took a special 
delight in the fellowship of these men 
and in their skills. It is as a true 
Christian that our friend most nearly 
reaches perfection. His was a faith 
that withstood the acid test of ad- 
versity of every description. His life 
itself was the exemplification of 
Christ-like living. 

Respected, esteemed, honored and 
loved in life itself, his memory shall 
be tradition, in a fact, it shall be Leb- 
anon Valley itself. Thus to the mem- 
ory of one who has contributed much 
to the richness of the heritage that 
is ours, we dedicate this issue of La 
Vie Collegienne and to his bereaved 
widow and family we extend heartfelt 
sympathy and condolences.

An Appreciation of the Life of Paul Smith Wagner 

By Dr. Clyde A. Lynch 

To us, the chosen few who were 
privileged to know intimately and ap- 
preciatively the personal and public 
life of Dr. Paul Smith Wagner, there 
now comes at this sacred hour the 
holy privilege of entering into a select 
fellowship of sanctified sorrow, in 
which subdued joy and lively hope co- 
mingle as we reverently pay our sin- 
cere tributes of respect to a scholar 

effort to locate and to conquer the dif 
ficul J y; thus did he improve himself 
and increase his efficiency as a stud 
ent, not merely to establish a good 
academic record but to prepare him 
self for other conquests beyond the 
campus horizons. 

Even as a student he was deeply 
interested in the improvement of that 
intangible thing called college spirit, 

and a Christian gentleman, and com- I and he was greatly concerned about 

municate to his bereaved wife and 
daughter our deepest sympathy. Let 
us bring our hearts and minds close 
together in this solemn meditation, 

the moral and spiritual aspects of 
campus life. The extra-curricular ex- 
periences of his student days served 
to prepare him for the supervision 

mon loss 

Many and beautiful are these flow- 
ers that symbolize the rare beauty 
and fragrance of the noble life that 
has reached the end of its earthly pil- 
grimage, and many are the tears and 
many are the words that testify to 
our collective grief in the loss of so 
good a man. Every mourner here 
could, if he were permitted, offer a 
word of personal appreciation in lov- 
ing recognition of Dr. Wagner's worth 
to each group with which he was iden- 
tified, beginning with the narrow cir- 
cle of his own home and ending only 
with the general diffusion of his 
wholesome influence in society at 

But with the exception of those who 
were related to him by ties of blood 
and of marriage, and possibly a few 
very intimate friends, those who feel 
his loss most keenly and therefore 
sorrow most deeply are the members 
of the administrative staff, the fac- 
ulty, and those alumni and students 
of Lebanon Valley College who were 
associated with Dr. Wagner in tne 
more recent years of his professor- 
ship and in the more remote years 
when he was a student here. To me, 
the President of the College, has been 
delegated the service of speaking for 
all of you, to make vocal your own 
thoughts and emotions that have been 
so profoundly stirred by the passing 
of a loved one and our most highly 
esteemed friend and brother, so 
"In words, like weeds, I'll wrap me 

Like coarsest clothes against the 

But that large grief which these en- 

Is given in outline and no more." 

for we all have kinship in our com- j which he later gave as a resident of 

the dormitory, where he effected a 
rapid improvement in student morale 
and raised the ethical standards of 
the students to a high level. His per- 
sonal exemplification of the principles 
he taught, his generous giving of 
himself in true friendship, and the 
sharing of his limited substance with 
those who needed his help were but 
the humble beginnings of a policy of 
generosity that increased with his 
ability to give. 

It is doubtful whether the College 
has ever had a more popular and ef- 
ficient professor, and his unusual 
popularity was not acquired by his 
sacrificing anything essential in per- 
sonal conduct or classroom discipline. 
His students loved and respected him 
becau. e he loved and respected them. 
Remembering his own early handicaps 
he possessed a remarkable keenness 
of vision for detecting both the defi- 
ciencies and the good qualities of his 
students. The work of his depart- 
ment was student-centered, and he 
loved his work. Next to his devotion 
to his home was his consecration to 
the high and holy calling of the 

Many were the hours that he spent 
in his own home and in the dormitory 
rooms with retarded students who had 
found no royal road to geometry and 
other mathematical courses. Even 
during his recent illness, almost up 
until the time when his strength was 
about exhausted, he gave himself 
without stint to those who would seek 
his help. Not infrequently did he 
leave his restful bed to assist inquir- 
ing students who never knew at what 
personal sacrifice he was increasing 
their proficiency in his beloved sub- 

When it became necessary to pro- 
cure a substitute in his department, 
two characteristic attitudes were in 
evidence: the first was his unconquer- 
able optimism, for he hoped and for 
a time, fully expected to recover suf- 
ficiently to renew his professorial du- 
ties; the second was the cordial co- 
operation he gave to his associate and 
successor in the Department, for in 
his mind it was the work of the De- 
partment that mattered most. With 
remarkable insight into his incapac- 
ity he declared frequently that he 
had no desire to go back unless he 
knew he could teach as well as he did 
before his illness. Later he often vis- 
ited the classes and assisted stud- 
ents as occasion arose. He made he- 
roic and persistent efforts to reclaim 
his vanishing skills and to restore his 
depleted energy. He was not one to 
give up easily, and his indomitable 
courage surprised doctors and colleag- 
ues alike. His strong will to live and 
the boundless love he had for his 
work and students gave him a momen- 
tum which disease and death found it 
difficult to resist. 

What has been said concerning his 
characteristics as a teacher may be 
applied equally well to his service to 
the College in his administrative ca- 
pacity. As Assistant to three Presi- 
dents he was always loyal to his 
chiefs, congenial with his associates, 
and considerate of those working un- 

it was in the fall of 1913 that the 
paths of Dr. Paul S. Wagner and the 
writer converged on the campus of 
Lebanon Valley College. Proudly 
wearing our little green caps, we were 
called by the Freshmen to serve, he 
as Vice President and I as President 
of the class. It became apparent very 
early in his college career that he was 
not made of common clay. This was 
manifested in his terrific struggle 
with adverse circumstances to reach 
his desired goal. His highly sensi- 
tive nature made him respond to his 
new social environment inquistively, 
sympathetically, and accommodating- 
ly; his friendly and optimistic per- 
sonality radiated a warmth of heart 
and an attitude of mind that soon 
won for him a host of student friends. 
The secret of his ability to attract 
many friends was his own unselfish 

His aspiration to derive the maxi- 
mal benefits of his college courses 
very early brought him to the favor- 
able attention 'of the faculty. Tire- 
less, systematic and conscientious in 
his work, he laid an enduring founda- 
tion for his subsequent graduate work 
in the University. A low grade did 
not serve as the occasion of self-pity, 
excuse making, nor an unwarranted 
attack on the professor; to Paul a poor 
mark came and was accepted as a 
challenge for an honest introspective 

der his supervision. Far-seeing in 
planning and organizing the work of 
the institution, he made many val- 
uable contributions to its growth and 
improvement. While teaching always 
remained his first love and received 
his major attention, he gave many 
extra hours to administrative duties. 
During President Gossard's prolonged 
incapacity, Dr. Wagner was to my dis- 
tinguished predecessor his strong 
right arm; in the interim between Dr. 
Gossard's administration and that of 
the incumbent, the work of Acting 
President, Dr. J. R. Engle, was like 
wise greatly facilitated by the capable 
leadership of our departed co-worker 
A similar cooperation characterized 
his brief official associations with the 
writer, giving continuity to the ad- 
ministrative work of the college 
Both in teaching and in official ca- 
pacity Dr. Wagner was pre-eminent- 
ly a problem solver — not a problem 
maker. He never embarrassed the 
President or cast any shadow on the 
College. To the very last his charac 
ter was unsullied and his reputation 
secure. He was one of our highest 
exponents of what a faculty member 
and an administrative officer in a 
Christian college should always be. 
Never did he betray his sacred trust; 
always did he exercise his education- 
al stewardship on the highest plane 
of Christian character and scholas- 
tic efficiency. 

It has often been quoted that if one 
wants to know whether a man is a 
Christian, ask his wife. The testi- 
mony of the one who knew Dr. Wag- 
ner most intimately is this: "He was 
the best Christian man I have ever 
known." When a man retreats into 
the privacy of his own home, often he 
will take off his mask and unbridle 
his tongue as he releases himself 
from the inhibitions imposed by con- 
ventionalities and the demands of 
public service; but not so with the 
man whose passing we lament today; 
he never carried through the hallow- 
ed portals of his peaceful home any 
expression of malice. When wrong- 
ed, he never held a grudge — a trait 
which he likely inherited from his 
gentle mother. When the situation 
necessitated his speaking candidly to 
his associates of the administrative 
staff, to members of the faculty, or 
to students, he would often say to his 
confidants, "I am a friend of that 
person, if I were not, I wouldn't have 
told him what I did. I told him for 
his own good." Our sainted brother 
did not conceive of his religion exclu- 
sively in terms of his having been 
forgiven by God; he himself, like his 
Heavenly Father, was a forgiver. He 
could go to his bed at night after a 
difficult day, close his eyes in the 
sweet slumber permitted to those of 
good conscience, and fall asleep pray- 
ing, "And forgive us our debts, as 
we forgive our debtors." The abil- 
ity and willingness to forgive a real 
or imagined wrong is the acid test of 
a person's religion. 

His home life was ideal. It was 
the abode of a true and abiding affec- 
tion. His devotion to his wife and 
children was beautiful and enduring. 
And in this home friends and ac- 
quaintances always found a hearty 
welcome, good fellowship, pleasant 
conversation, and wholesome enter- 
tainment. Never has another profes- 
sor's home been more accessible to 
students, and never has any other 
home better fulfilled the expectations 
of its guests. Next to his anticipat- 
ed home in heaven Dr. Wagner's chief 
joy of possession was this attractive 
and comfortable residence. 

His church home likewise occupied 
an important place in his affections. 
Ever faithful in attendance, always 
efficient in those official responsibil- 
ities committed to him and exception- 
ally generous in his financial support 
of the work of the local church, he 
proved himself "a workman that 
needeth not to be askamed." Thor- 
oughly consecrated to the service of 

the Kingdom of God, he daily 
in grace and in the knowledge of 
Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ 
pastor nas likewise said of him'-. 


ferring to his church relationship 
did not create problems; he s ' 
them." The liberality which Q v 
terized his support of the a.^, 
church was extended to many 
benevolent and philanthropic 
prises. Many students were the 
cipients of his benefactions; a ri(j 
yond a doubt, one reason for his 
to indigent students was his ren, 
brance of his own early strugg^" 1 
procure a college education. 

Dr. Wagner's Christianity 
both the temptations associated • 
prosperity and those belonging t ^ 
versity. When, in 1932, death ijl 
ed his home and relationship * 
times including a son, a mother 
his wife's mother, he was susti, 
by an unconquerable faith in the^ 
dom and the goodness of God. I 
learned in the house of mourning h, 
earth has no sorrow that heaven 
not heal. Cherishing the ple asat 
memories of cloudless days, he 4 
clined to bow before the image of % 
pair. He refused to yield to a 
mistic attitude toward life, firmly^ 
lieving that all things would ultim at( 
ly work together for eternal good fe 
God's elect. He was thoroughly cot 
vinced that, notwithstanding the li» 
itations of human reason, when 4 
positive and negative experiences i 
life are added together in eternity 
the final sign will be plus instead ( 

This same satisfying philosophy I 
life and his ability to draw 
supplies of the divine grace to endw 
bereavement were also sufficient tf 
sustain him when his own body m 
touched by the heavy hand of afflic- 
tion. Unlike Job he did not w] 
he wore the sackcloth of suffering 
the inside, and even his very intii 
friends were not permitted to see 
the tragic marks disease had inflict 
ed upon him. He often expresi 
himself as wishing that he could lii 
but, he would say, "if I must die, 
am not afraid; I am ready to go/' 
With amazing fortitude he checl 
those strong human impulses to 
vent to the deep conflicting emotions 
that sweep across the battlefield j 
a man's own heart when the str< 
and strain of a terrible disasi 
threaten to bring disintegration to 
spirit. Only once, in a moment

nia p r Wagner's life speaks for itself, 
jjis deeds are so eloquent that no 
o01 . words of mine can possibly add 
to the effectiveness of the record 
which he himself produced during the 
years of his brief sojourn among us. 
tye need not pity him, for he has been 
released from the restrictions and 
pain imposed upon him by illness. His 
unfettered spirit has winged his way 
back to God, Who is our eternal home. 
Let us rather pity ourselves that we 
have lost temporarily so kind a friend, 
so generous a helper, so efficient a 
colleague, so good a citizen, so devot- 
ed a Christian and a churchman, so 
faithful and loving a husband and a 
father. Nor would he have us pity 
him. In the Epilogue to "ASOLAN- 
DO," Browning imagines his friends 
pitying him after his death. But he 
laughs at their pity, reminding them 
who he is: 

"One who never turned his back but 
marched breast forward, 
Never doubted clouds would break, 
Never dreamed, tho' right were 
worsted, wrong would tri- 

Held we fall to rise, are baffled to 
fight better, 

Sleep to wake. 

"No, at noonday in the bustle of 
Man's work-time 
Greet the unseen with a cheer! 
Bid him forward, breast and back as 

either should be, 
'Strive and thrive!' cry 'Speed — 
fight on, fare ever 
There as here!'" 

Paul S. Wagner was, still is, and 
eternally shall be, such a man. His life 
institutes a tremendous challenge to 
a ll who knew and loved him. This 
modern saint, like Saint Paul of the 
first Christian century, was required 
to learn through suffering that God's 
S r ace is always sufficient — that thorns 
m the flesh serve to keep us humble, 
* n d compel us to lean heavily on the 
blasting Arms. 

And when ,at last, for us the twi- 
,'Sht falls, and the time of our em-

By Proboscis 
This week it is Proboscis' intention 
to depart from custom and dedicate 
this column to the memory of a man 
whose untimely death on Monday 
morning was a source of great sorrow 
to all who knew him. While Dr. Wag- 
ner's condition was known to be seri- 
ous, none of us were prepared for 

news of his passing. 

* * * # 

Speaking now as an individual, I 
propose to recall him as I, along with 
others, knew him; not as a forbidding 
personage in the guise of a math prof, 
but as a kindly friend — not as an in- 
structor of grim visage and fierce 
demeanor, but as an ever-smiling 
teacher whose very humanness was 
his most effective weapon in his daily 
work. If by doing this I can add to, 
rather than detract from, the clarity 
and quality of that part of him which 
lives on, then I shall not have failed 

in these inadequate sentences. 

* * * * 

I am thinking now of the times, 
which were numerous, when he'd walk 
into the room unannounced and sug- 
gest a game of bridge; or, less often, 
pinochle. Those games were an evi- 
dent source of pleasure to him and, 
while his razor-sharp mind almost 
always brought him out on top, I got 
the impression not that he was a su- 
perior condescending to associate with 
his students, but that he was one of 
the fellows, dropping in to talk and 
play cards with those who were his 

* * * * 

At such times, as usually happens, 
the talk ran to a wide variety of sub- 
jects; and Dr. Wagner gave his views 
along with those of the rest of us. 
In that way I came to know something 
of his outlook on life — how he felt 
about this, by what reasoning he had 
concluded so-and-so on that. He was 
inevitably fair and impartial, and 
through it all he played rings around 
those who were opposite him at the 

* * * * 

At other times he'd saunter into 
the middle of an active bull session, 
and he fitted there just as he fitted 
anywhere else. Here again he entered 
into the spirit of it with a boyish en- 
ergy and enthusiasm that belied his 
position. Oh yes, there may have been 
some restraint of spontaneity in his 
presence — that is only to be expected; 
but he was above all else sincere and 
earnest, so that we learned much from 

him. He had much to give. 

* * * ( * 

He'd reminisce for us about the 
past twenty years or more here at 
Lebanon Valley, and his acquaint- 
ances and experiences were so far- 
reaching that inevitably the listeners 
acquired a true perspective of people 
and things. He knew a great deal 
that was interesting and could easily 
have dominated any of the talks we 
had with him — but in his unassuming 
way he was content to be one of us, 
and so was established that casual 
relationship in terms of which I shall 

always think of him. 

* # # * 

Out of the mass of impressions 
emerges the memory of his optimism 
and fine courage. Only a thorough- 
bred has the type of grit which he 
exemplified, especially during the last 
four or five years when he was fight- 
ing a steadily losing battle against 
his grim affliction. He was "fight" 
personified; in the face of circum- 
stances that would prove the undoing 
of weaker men he laughed and smil- 
ingly battled on. 

* * * * 

Uncomplaining, asking no favors, 
he reposed his trust in his God; and 
he never gave up hope. Although at 
times he must have been torn in mind 
and spirit by awful doubts, he made 
his life a classic example of the spirit 
of Browning's "Prospice": 

"Though a battle's to fight ere the 

guerdon be gained, 
The reward of it all. 
I was ever a fighter, so — one fight 


The best and the last!" 

And paradoxically enough, I feel sure 
that in the very act of losing his fight 

he has won it. 

* * * * 

Then I was fortunate enough, last 
year, to come into contact with Dr. 
Wagner in the classroom. Although 
he was then no longer his normal self 
he was still able to prove himself a 
master teacher. The store of knowl- 
edge which he possessed then, when 
much of it had been torn from him, 
often made me wonder just how much 
more he had known before misfortune 
struck. There too he was the patient, 
friendly counselor, sparing no effort 
on his own part that would contribute 
in any way, however small, to our 

* * * * 

That part of his life dealing with 
his services to Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege in many other ways I must of 
necessity pass over, because I did not 
know him then. If the testimony of 
those who did can be counted as truth, 
however, we must look on him as a re- 
markably able man. Such, at least, I 
knew him to be. 

With all this verbiage there is still 
much that will remain unsaid; and 
maybe it is better so. It is enough to 
say that his memory and the influ- 
ences of his life will live on long after 
these pages are yellowed with age. 

* * * * 

As one of his students and friends, 
I wish to extend for myself my deep- 
est sympathy to Dr. Wagner's bereft 
widow and daughter; and such was 
and is the esteem in which we all 
held him, that I feel sure that 
through me speaks the voice of a sor- 
rowing student body. We shall miss 
him greatly; how could we forget?

courses at Columbia University. 
From 1923 to 1926 he assisted in 
mathematics and completed his gra- 
duate study at Johns Hopkins, from 
which institution he received his M.A. 
degree in 1925 and his Ph. D. the fol- 
lowing year. 

He returned to Lebanon Valley 
College once more in 1926 to become 
Professor of Mathematics, serving in 
this position until 1934 when ill health 
made it necessary for him to relin- 
quish his duties. 

However, Dr. Wagner's activities 
were not confined to the mathematics 
department, for he served as gradu- 
ate-manager of athletics for a number 
of years. In addition, he acted as as- 
sistant to the late Dr. Gossard and 
also under the present president, Dr. 

In 1926 he married Miss Lois Plitt, 
who survives along with a daughter, 
Virginia Ann. 

He was affiliated with the Lebanon 
Masonic Lodge, and the Joseph T. 
Connor Post, No. 559 of the American 
Legion. His church membership was 
held in the United Brethren Church 
of Annville. 

Private funeral services were held 
bhis morning at the home, with Drs. 
Lynch and Wilt officiating. Burial 
was in the Loudon Park Cemetery,

Last Thrusday evening the Life 
Work Recruits met in North Hall 
Parlor at 7 P. M. for their weekly 
meeting. The devotional service was 
under the direction of Frances Prutz- 
man, who presented the opening 
thoughts. Charles Miller led the Re- 
cruits in prayer. The speaker of the 
evening was Solomon Caulker, who 
spoke on the subject "What Does 
Christianity Mean to You?" He pre- 
sented a challenging talk based upon 
his own valuable experiences. After 
the inspirational service Thomas 
Guinivan as vice president conducted 
a brief business session and concluded 

the meeting with prayer. 

* * * * 

The Life Work Recruits had charge 
of the special evening service held at 
the Annville United Brethren Church 
last Sunday. The Junior Choir of the 
church assisted with beautiful pre- 
sentations in music. Audrie Fox read 
the Scripture Lesson, while Carl Ehr- 
hart delivered the evening prayer. 
The sermon was given by Paul Horn, 
president of the Life Work Recruits, 
who used for his subject "The Re- 
ligion of Jesus." This service was in- 
stituted by Dr. Wilt as a new inno- 
vation, which if successful will possib- 
ly be continued. An extremely fine 
attendance was present to enjoy the 

inspirational value of the service.

Student prayer meeting was held 
last evening at 6:45 P. M. in Philo 
Hall. It was under the direction of 
the Y. M. C. A. Carl Ehrhart pre- 
sented a very interesting talk. Inter- 
est has been very keen in these meet- 
ings. Have you been present? 

trary to popular belief the first uni- 
versity in America was not Harvard. 
Nor was Baylor University the first 
institution of higher learning west of 
the Mississippi. 

For exactly 85 years before John 
Harvard endowed his dream school in 
Cambridge in 1638, some of the more 
ambitious Spanish explorers and edu- 
cators founded the University of 
Mexico. This little school opened its 
doors in 1553. 

At this time which was very few 
years after Hernando Cortz crushed 
the tottering Aztec empire, a flourish- 
ing civilization existed in Mexico. 
Scholars and writers had begun to 
come from the old world, and the first 
textbook in philosophy to be written 
in America was used in the new uni- 

This was titled "Recognita Summul- 
raum." Fray Alonso de la Veracruz 
was the author. Veracruz also wrote 
two other textbooks for use in the 
school. They were "Dailectia Resolu- 
tio cum textu Aristotelian," logic with 
an Aristotelian text, and "Physica 
Speculatio," an explanation of New- 
ton's law of gravitation. The first 
two appeared in 1554 and the latter 
in 1557. All were printed, one page 
at a time, on a crude block printing 
press which was the most modern in 
all Mexico at that time. 

Another of the books used was a 
Latin grammer by Francisco Cervan- 
tes de Salazar, the first rhetoric teach- 
er in North America. Its title was 
"Commenteria in Ludovici Vives Ex- 
ercitaticiones Lingua Latinae." Also 

appearing in 1554 this book is inter- 
esting for the hints it gives conce.n- 
ing the teachers, their character and 
grading systems. 

Strangely enough, though each of 
these volumes is nearly four centuries 
old, a copy of each has been preserved 
and exists today in the University of 
Texas library here.

Professor Freeland 
Continues Tours 

Merle Freeland, professor of piano 
in the conservatory, just returned 
from a concert tour which took him 
as far north as Noranda, Quebec, 
which is only two hundred miles south 
of the Hudson Bay. He and Joseph 
Bentonelli, tenor, whom he accompan- 
ied, had some very interesting exper- 
iences in this cold northern town in 
which is located the world's largest 
copper mine. During their stay there 
the temperature was 6 degrees above 
zero, comparatively warm towards the 
intense cold weather which comes lat- 
er and drops the thermometer to 30 
or 40 degrees below zero. 

Now Professor Freeland is making 
another concert tour. On Monday 
night he appeared at Raleigh, North 
Carolina where he accompanied Jos- 
eph Bentonelli. 

From there he journeyed to New 
York where he spent a half day. Then 
to Ottawa, Canada, where he accom- 
panied Earle Spicer, baritone. They 
appeared at a private party in the 
Government House of Canada as the 
guests of Lord and Lady Tweeds- 
muir. Lord Tweedsmuir is the Gover- 
nor-General of Canada. The Govern- 
ment House is an equivalent to the 
White House at Washipngton, D. C. 

On Thursday afternoon they will 
go to New York where they have an 
engagement for a private concert. On 
December 13, both artists will appear 
again in New York. 

Earl Spicer is a baritone who is a 
native of Canada. He has done ex- 
tensive singing in England, Canada, 
and the United States. Professor 
Freeland will accompany him, as well 
as play several piano selections. 

More than 20,000 balloons were re- 
leased at the opening kick-off of the 
Minnesota-Michigan football fracas.

Chesterfield Forecaster 
Picks All-American Team 

EDDIE DOOLEY, Radio's Favorite 
Football Authority Climaxes his 
Chesterfield Cigarette Football Ser- 
ies with 1938 All-America Selec- 

A week before Eric Tipton, of Duke 
punted his team to its 7-0 victory over 
r'itt, Eddie Dooiey, the famous foot- 
oall forecaster and commentator, who 
nas been broadcasting weeKly for the 
Chesterfield dgareUes, picked Tipton 
for the Chesterlield 1938 All-America 
xootball team. 

That Dooley's placing of the Duke 
star on his ace team was fully justi- 
fied, was amply borne out by Duke's 
prompt bid and acceptance to the Rose 
rJowl alter its remarkable, unbeaten, 
untied and unscored-on season. 

Chestenieid's Ail-America football 
ceam, as cnosen by Dooiey and an- 
nounced recently over his nation-wide 
nookup, is being hailed by coaches ano 
critics as one of the most represen- 
tative teams of the year. The team 
was chosen by Dooiey in collaboration 
with more than one hundred leading 

No eleven of previous years packs 
more line power and scoring punch, 
more hard running backs and aggres- 
sive forwards than the team Dooiey 
chose for Chesterfield. It is made up 
of eleven players all of whom have 
performed with rare distinction in 
Jieir respective positions all season. 

Dooley's team is as follows: 

Ends — Earl Brown, of Notre Dame, 
and W. Roland Young, of Oklahoma. 

Tackles — Steve Maronic, of North 
Carolina, and Francis Twedell, of Min- 

Guards — Sid Roth, of Cornell, and 
Ralph Heikkinen, of Michigan.

Belmer has played three years of 
varsity football since coming to Leb- 
anon Valley and during the past sea- 
son became one of the outstanding 
performers on the Blue aand White

It is my privilege this week to have 
as guest writer Miss Myers, the li- 
Dranan. She has reviewed for you 
one of the year's most popular non- 
nctional books. 

By Margaret Armstrong 

About the beginning of the Nine- 
teentn Century tnere was born a gay, 
loving girl in London. Her family 
were both histrionically talented and 
socially gifted. To her fatner's house 
came famous actors and other well 
Known people who liked wit and con- 
versation. The rule that governed 
tnat Society was the admittance oi 
anyone but boors. 

The fascinating story of this very 
loyal, extremely talented girl is told 
by Margaret Armstrong in her bio- 
grapby of Fanny Kemble. The basis 
of tne biography is Fanny Kemble's 
own journal. It is not written as a 
journal, but has the movement of a 
novel. While most of the book is writ- 
ten in a light charming style, it is 
serious when tragedy enters the story. 

As you read, Fanny Kemble comes 
to life. The story is such a fascinat- 
ing one, that your interest becomes 
keyed up to know what next is going 
to happen in her life. 

Circumstances never downed her. 
She knew poverty; she knew fame; 
she was the toast of London; she 
knew what it was to be a rich man's 
wife and be without money; she knew 
separation from her beloved daugh- 
ters, but with it all, she always took 
the way of honor, gave of her best 
to her loved ones. 

Miss Armstrong has written in a 
fair, critical manner, she shows that 
her character was not always nice. 
While there is adulation, there is not 
too much. For if we doubt one mo- 
ment that such a person ever lived, 
the next moment we wish we might 
have known her. 

A University of Texas mathematics 
class was recently dismissed in the

Metoxen Issues Call 
To Basketeers 

Coach Emerson (Chief) Metoxen 
issued the call for the initial work- 
out of the Lebanon Valley College 
"Flying Dutchmen" last week, and an- 
nounced that daily sessions will be 
held until the Xmas holidays which 
begin December 16. The powerful 
Blue and White court aggregation 
faces a tough sixteen game schedule 
which gets underway January 7. 

In addition ito the Eastern Pennsyl- 
vania Collegeate League opponets, 
Franklin and Marshall, Gettysburg, 
Drexel, Muhlenberg, Albright and 
Ursinus, Lebanon Valley will meet St. 
Josephs, the famed "mighty unites" 
of recent seasons. La Salle, Mt. St. 
Mary's who were collegiate champs of 
Maryland last season and Bucknell, 
St. Joe and La Salle will be met in 
Philadelphia while Mt. St. Mary's will 
be entertained on the new Lebanon 
High School floor. The splendid Leba- 
onn High court will be the home floor 
of the Annville aggregation this sea- 
son. The Bucknell date has not been 
definitely set but more than likely 
will be played at Lewisburg. 

Lebanon Valley's hopes this year 
will be pinned on four of the five men 
that set the new league scoring re- 
cord last year. With veterans such as 
"Raymie" Frey, Lebanon center; Bob 
Artz, Lebanon forward; Ed Kress, 
Minersville guard and Bob Brown 
captain of L. V.'s most successful 
football team in many a moon, the 
Flying Dutchmen should have little 
trouble in making a good showing this 

L. V. C. fans are highly enthuisas- 
tic over the Blue and White's chances 
to cop that coveted E. P. C. League 
crown which so barely evaded the 
high-scoring quintet a year ago. 

The schedule in detail i s as follows : 
Jan. 7, F. and M. at Lebanon. 
Jan. 12, Gettysburg at Gettysburg. 
Jan. 14, Drexel at Philadelphia. 
Jan. 31, Muhlenberg at Lebanon. 
Feb. 1, Ursinus at Collegeville. 
Feb. 4, Mt. St. Mary^s at Lebanon.

who is the organist's godfather, open- 
ed the latter portion. This was fol- 
lowed by two settings of "A Rose 
Breaks Into Bloom." The writer miss- 
ed the point of these two unless it 
was to contract the way two men of 
different periods conceived of the 
same thing. 

I liked the spiritual in modern 
style which followed. This number 
gave opportunity for tonal display of 
the organ, a feature at which the ar- 
tist of the evening always excel! s. 

The Roulade is a delightful bit of 
writing which deserves to be heard 
more frequently. The little French 
number was likewise quite refreshing. 

The artist closed the program with 
the final movement of Pagella's First 
Sonata. One scarcely knows what to 
say of this selection— it's good, but 
there is nothing spectacular about it. 

For an encore, Professor Campbell 
played Yon's Toccato in D Major.

Speeches, Turkey Feature 
Annual Holiday Affair 

Amid the fitting and elaborate dec- 
orations in the dining hall, the dor- 
mitory students ate their fill at the 
annual Christmas banquet which was 
served last evening. 

The delicious meal was prepared by 
the college chef, Eddie Loose, and 
was featured with roast turkey and 
ihestnut filling, and all the "fixins" 
that go with a meal of that type. "Ed- 
die" is to be congratulated as well as 
his helpers for the meal was indeed 
a success according to all the people 

In the large dining hall, the master 
of ceremonies was Howard Baier. He 
led the group singing throughout the 
meal and introduced the speakers led 
by Dr. Clyde A. Lynch. President 
Lynch brought greetings to the stud- 
ents on behalf of the faculty, and Mr. 
Baier reciprocated on behalf of the 
students. Th e other speakers for the 
occasion were Miss Dorothy Yeakel, 
Mr. Robert Dresel, Miss Margaret 
Bordwell, and Mr. Dean Aungst, on 
behalf of the senior, freshman, sopho- 
more, and junior classes respectively. 

Mr. Robert Tschop was M. C. in the 
small dining hall and was ably assist- 
ed in his efforts by Charles Brown, 
Evelyn Evans, Robert Hackman and

Senate Plans Dance 

On Monday evening, January 2, 
the Men's Senate is planning to 
hold a New Year's Dance in the 
Alumni Gymnasium. The affair 
according to Senate President Roy 
Weidman, will start at 8:00 P. M. 
and the music will be furnished by 
the reliable nickelodeon. The dance 
has been planned to provide enter- 
tainment on the campus for stu- 
dents who return from their holi- 
day vacation period that day. Day 
students are also invited to attend 
this affair. 


Initiate Members Read 
At Green Blotter Club 

The Green Blotter Club held it's 
monthly meeting at 7:30, December 
13, at the new home of Dr. and Mrs. 
Stlrable on Ulrich Avenue. The meet- 
ing was presided over by Alice 
Richie, Head Scop. Bob Long was ap- 
pointed critic of the evening. 

Carl Ehrhart read a travelogue 
titled "Don't Visit Gettysburg." Bob 
Long followed with two poems, "Main 
Street" and "First Aid." Mary Touch- 
stone read a brief humorous poem. 
Evelyn Evans continued with more 
poetry, Floda Traut read "A Prayer" 
and Evelyn Miller recited a short 

Francis Prutzman's contribution to 
the evening was a short story called 
"Prayer Meeting." Robert Mays pro- 
voked a bit of discussion by his timely 
editorial "In Defense of Christmas." 
Paul Stauffer read several character 
sketches. Harold Moody gave exerpts 
from an essay on Wordsworth, and 

Wice Richie wound up the serious 
business with two of her poems. 

After this the group gossiped over 
Mrs. Struble's much appreciated con- 

ribution to the furtherance of liter- 
ary improvement — tea and chocolate 

Chem Club Members 
Plan Several Trips 

A meeting of the Chemistry Club, 
necessarily postponed for two weeks, 
was held Tuesday evening in the 
Chemistry lecture room of the Ad- 
ministration Building. The program 
for the evening consisted of the show- 
ing of several reels of film picturing 
the bringing in of a gusher oil well in 
Mexico and reports by members of the 
organization. Bob Rapp, speaking on 
'Chemical Porcelain Ware," told of 
the securing and preparation of the 
-aw materials and the shaping, bak- 
ng, and glazing of the ware. Choos- 
ing "Diamond" as his topic, Stewart 
Shapiro gave an account of diamond 
mining, offered some interesting stori- 
es of famous diamonds, and told of 
the synthetic preparation of minute 

Announcement was made that the 
trip committee had about about com- 
pleted plans for a trip to two or 
three of the Dupont plants shoi*tly 
after the Christmas holidays. It is 
probable that the Deepwater Dye 
works at Deepwater, New Jersey, and 
the Harrison plant at Gray's Ferry 
Road, Philadelphia, will be visited. 

Student-Faculty Council 
Considers Problems 

Examinations, Activities, 
Improvements Discussed 

The Student-Faculty Council helc" 
its first meeting of the current year 
on Wednesday, Dec. 7. Delayed by 
the failure of the classes to elec. 
'heir representatives, the council was 
forced to hold a rather lengthy discus- 
ion to prevent an over-crowded calen- 
dar of complaints and recommenda- 
tions. Four major interests of the 
students were discussed in great de- 
tail and has resulted in appointment 
of several investigating committees 
and one recommendation to the fac- 

The first feature to be considered 
by the group was the matter of eval- 
uation cf student activities. This 
matter has been of paramount im- 
portance since its introduction last 
spring. Martha Jane Koontz gave a 
report of the results of a similar sys- 
tem in the high school she attended 
in Baltimore, Md. After this report, 
Miss Ruth Long, freshman represen- 
tative, discussed the success of activ- 
ities evaluation at the University of 
Delaware. In this institution, accord- 
ing to Miss Long, activities are not 
only evaluated towards graduation 
credits, but those who excell in the 
various activities are given addition- 
al credits, and are finally elected to 
a national honorary society upon the 
accumulation of a certain number of 
activity credits. 

Following these reports the council 
decided to table their final decision 
on the matter until their next meet- 
ing in order to formulate a practi- 
cable and workable recommendation 
for the faculty. Further reports are 
expected before the faculty report is 

The second matter before the 
council was the question of a revis- 
ed method of grading the students' 
semester's work here at Lebanon Val- 
ley. It was agreed that the method 
which is popular in many courses, 
to use the semester examination grade

Quittie Proofs 

It is urgent that the proofs of 
those sittings made this week for 
the Quittie be returned by mail by 
the recipents immediately after re- 
ceiving and making a choice of 
them. Unless this is done immedi- 
ately the Studio will be forced to 
make the choice in order to get 
them finished in time. 

Sophomores Prepare 
Arrangements For Hop 

According to President William 
Jabbyshaw, January 13 has been ten- 
tatively selected by the sophomores 
.'or their presentation of the annual 
'Soph Hop." As in previous years 
the Annville High School Gymnasium 
•vill be the scene of the dance. The 
orchestra has not yet been definite'y 
selected, but Habbyshaw expressed 
complete confidence in Maurice Erd- 
man and his orchestra committee to 
make a wise choice following all the 
.raditicns of past "Hops." 

Extensive plans for appropriate 
lecorations for the affair are being 
formulated by Edna Rutherford and 
he decoration committee. Margaret 
Bordwell, Ferae Poet and John Dress- 
ier will have charge of the matter of 
chaperons, programs and advertising 
according to the list of committee 
heads appointed by the class presi- 
dent. A new committee will be head- 
ed by Alexander Rakow to assume 
complete charge of the financial wor- 
ries incurred during the preparation 
for the affair. This group is expect- 
ed to prevent any recurrence of the 
class' financial embarrassment after 
their "Frosh Frolic." 

In an exclusive interview President 
Habbyshaw stated: "The problem of 
financing and supporting a closed 
dance here on the campus has always 
been acute. The class solicits the 
whole-hearted support of the entire 
student body in this project. In re- 
turn for this backing, I will personal- 
ly guarantee a dance steeped in the 
be~t traditions and I feel sure that 
this relaxation just before examina- 
tions will be welcomed by all." 


La Vie" Considers In Retrospect 

As the year of 1938 draws to a 
close La Vie assumes a reminiscing 
mood and looks back over the out- 
standing features of the past year. 
The year has been crowded with much 
^uccess, especially in athletics. Win- 
ning teams in basketball and football 
rather dominate the crystal. Recitals, 
dramatics and other features of cam- 
pus life feature the remaining resume.

Junior Class Presents 
Barriers "Dear Brutus" 

Saylor, Lloyd, Miller 
Outstanding In Play 

To see a play and like it is a good 
Jeeling; to see a play and not like it 
or not understand it is a miserable 
reeling; but to see a fairly decent play 
and understanad and enjoy it and yet 
have no well-defined impression of 
vhat went on is an eerie experience 
vhich I suspect is peculiar to those 
vho~e misfortune it is to become in- 
volved in the reviewing racket. Such, 
,'or a time, was my situation after 
laving seen "Dear Brutus" put on by 
he Juniors on Monday evening; but 
"ournalistic tradition commands and 
[ can but follow, hence the remarks 
vhich are appended hereto. 

Candor compels me to say at the 
utset that the participants did not, 
n my opinion, do entirely right by Mr. 
BaiTie; that, judged by our local 
standards, the play was slightly be- 
low par. My loophole — for the last 
thought was not intended as a sweep- 
ing condemnation, by any means — is 
the contention that, as I see it, dra- 
matics here are distinctly on the up- 
grade; from which it follows logical- 
ly that a play could lag slightly be- 
hind and still be nothing at which to 
sneeze. While there may have been 
ome sniffling in progress among 
those who witnessed the performance 
in question, I still maintain that the 
cast, about whom I shall have some- 
what to say a bit later, turned out a 
play which was no five-star final but 
which was, on the whole, commendable 
enough when the limited selectivity 
so far as actors are concerned is tak-

Dr. Reynolds Edits 
Educational Work 

It will be of interest to the readers 
of LA VIE that when the September 
issue of the Journal of Educational 
Administration and Supervision recent- 
ly was published, the premier article 
was by one of Lebanon Valley's own 
professors, Dr. 0. Edgar Reynolds, 
with Dr. James Kinder, Pennsylvania 
College for Women, and Dr. J. I. 
Baugher, Superintendent of Schools, 
Hershey, Penna. as co-editors. 

The article, which is entitled "De- 
sirable Standards for Student Teachers 
ers in Liberal Colleges", is the out- 
growth of a five-year study by the 
above mentioned educators, acting as 
committee for the Association of 
Liberal Arts Colleges in Pennsylvania 
for the Advancement of Teaching. 
The findings of this committee's study 
s reported to and approved by the 
Vssociation was edited by its Chair- 
man, Dr. Reynolds, and submitted to 
the journal for publication. 

The Association of Liberal Arts 
Colleges of Pennsylvania for the Ad- 
ancement of Teaching desired to 
place student teaching on a more pro- 
fessional basis. The report of the 
ommittee covers six points of em- 
phasis, namely facilities, finances, per- 
onnel, selection of students, super- 
ision, and organization of the curri- 
culum. These discussions are followed 
by an extended bibliography.

Few students realize that one of 
the most important branches of stu- 
dent government here on the Lebanon 
Valley Campus is the under-popu 
larized Student-Faculty Council. Get- 
ting away to a late start due to the 
failure of certain classes to extend 
full cooperation, this organization has 
been thrust into the background and 
is now the "forgotten man" of our 
student government. Long credited 
by some as the most useful depart 
ment of student government, this 
council must needs be brought to the 
students' attention. 

The work of this group thus far 
been either unknown or else unap- 
preciated. Credit for several of the 
latest improvements on the campus 
have come due to recommendations 
of this organization. The exemption 
of honor students from final exami 
nations in their senior year was 
brought about entirely through the ef- 
forts of the body. This year the wide- 
ly-acclaimed extension of the holiday 
period, which has been taken as fac- 
culty action alone, was the direct out- 
come of a recommendation to the fac- 
ulty by the council. In addition to 
these changes, the council is working 
on various projects to improve the 
campus, by obtaining needed facili- 
ties and conveniences. Student acti- 
vities have long been a problem on 
the campus and is now in the process 
of solution only through the work oj. 
this group. 

In view of these accomplishments, 
it is only fitting that the students 
should acknowledge the power of this 
organization and use it as an organ 
through which to air their grievances 
and ideas for a better Lebanon Val- 

Christmas Banquet Held 
In College Dining Halls 

(Continued from page 2) 

banquet in both dining halls was 
"Christmas — Down Our Way" and 
many different interpretations of this 
subject were given. The resident 
students were informed of the differ- 
ent ways Christmas was celebrated in 
the various sections of the country 
represented at Lebanon Valley Col- 

After the banquet, a party chaper- 
oned by Miss Gillespie and Mr. Free- 
land was held in the alumni gymnas- 
ium. The W. S. G. A. and Men's Sen- 
ate had charge of the arrangements 
for both the banquet and party. 


By Proboscis 
Well, here we are, back again for a 
few minutes of rambling aimlessly 
over some assorted trivia before start- 
ing to pack for the trek back home. We 
crust you'll be able to stand the hard- 
ships of the trip after the banquet last 

As a weather prophet Mr. J. W. Es- 
benshade is not so hot. On our re- 
turn from Thanksgiving vacation he 
went to the trouble of putting up the 
now famous "In case of snowfall" no- 
tice on the bulletin board of the Men's 
Dorm. Alas for those boys whose N. 
Y. A. time would thus be expended in 
shoveling snow! We've had none since, 
iiut Proboscis is giving odds that 
snow will fall on Saturday, when 
we've all gone home — and what will 
Mr. Esbenshade do then? 

* * * * 

Some of our would-be Casanovas 
who work at Hershey came a cropper 
last week when their stuff was stolen 
in no uncertain fashion by one who 
makes no claims to being a ladies' 
man. In other words, the boy out- 
bassed the Joe Basses. 

* * * * 

Munday, McKnight, et al had made 
Known to all who cared to listen that 
they intended to date up some of the 
chorus cuues who were in Hershey in 
connection with the Ice Follies. In 
some unaccountable way their wiles 
failed to take effect, as a result of 
which they were forced to be content 
with worshiping from afar. 

* * * * 

Imagine then, if you can, their as- 
tonishment and chagrin when they 
.aw Bob Dinsmore in the company ol 
a blonde who, so we're told, is any- 
thing but unattractive. It seems Bob 
nad a date — which put the smoothies 
ill a rather bad light. Maybe these 
fork County boys have something on 

the ball after all. 

* * * * 

In response to questioning, Bob re- 
pealed that he'd done nothing by hal- 
ves; he took her to the Oyster Bar. 
And not only that, but he hopes to 
correspond with her. Talk about hid- 
ing your light under a bushel — Dins- 
more's been a threat to the campiu 
^omeos all along and none of them 
were aware of the fact. Look to your 
laurels, boys! 

Now that the Christmas season is 
upon us, Proboscis is keeping all wires 
open in order to lear-n which of the 
campus couples will be the first to 
inaugurate the good old "Christmas 
spat" custom. Confined in practice 
chiefly to those who find themselves 
a bit short of money as the holidays 
approach, this traditional event con- 
sists of conveniently having a misun- 
derstanding a week or two before 
Christmas, thus avoiding the neces- 
sity of buying a present for the chum. 
The deadline in most local cases is 
Friday, so — we're listening for the 
disc (h) ords. 

* # * * 

Proboscis feels that the administra- 
tion gave a convincing example of con- 
sideration and sympathetic under- 
standing in extending the holiday va- 
cation period to include Monday, 
Jan. 2. The feeling was general — 
unofficially, of course — that having to 
return for classes on the first, as 
most of us would have had to do, 
would be an inconvenience; and we 
owe our thanks to the college au- 
thorities for their prompt action in 
the matter. We might take the case 
as an example for ourselves. 

* * * * 

Most of us like to see the coming 
of Christmas heralded by gay decora- 
tions — trees, lights, holly and all the 
other features that go together to 
build up the Christmas atmosphere. 
All of which is a prelude to saying 
that the campus is brighter and gay- 
er this year than ever before. The 
idea of having a lighted tree out in 
the center of the campus is a good 
cne; it adds to the effect of the dec- 
orations visible in or on the various 
dorms. Maybe Proboscis has turned 
sentimentalist all of a sudden, but he 
does like to see these indications of 

* * * * 

Tonight we will gather around that 
same tree and sing carols. Those to 
whom this may seem a prosaic cus- 
tom, or to whom it seems silly, have 
the privilege of staying away; to us 
carol singing has always been fun. It 
is part of that tradition which is pres- 
ent, at least in part, in all of us.

By Martha Jane Koontz 

5:30 P. M., Monday, November 28, 
Baltimore, Maryland. Snow falling- 
fast, ice and snow covering the streets, 
a north wind rising. Streetcars crawl- 
ing along the streets delayed by the 
excess of persons unable because of 
the weather to use their automobiles. 
One of these streetcars opened its 
doors at a certain stop to two women, 
both obviously unused to travel in 
public conveyances, — a rotund dow- 
ager followed by a young society ma- 
tron. Having entered the car. The 
Dowager waited in dignity for The 
Matron to locate her a seat. Follow- 
ing the outstretched arm of her 
friend, her eyes stopped on the oc- 
upant of the place next to the only 
empty seat in the car. A look of in- 
credulity crossed her face as she 
quickly turned to say in a voice loud 
enough to be heard throughout the 
entire car, "! Sit beside a nigger! 
Why I have never done it!" The 
though of standing far the long ride 
must have suddenly entered her mind 
however, for she condescendingly 
went on with a shrug, "But if I must 
ride on a common car, I suppose I 
must sit beside a common person. I'm 
sure a real Lady such as I could not 
be contaminated by a single contact 
with a nigger." With this announce- 
ment of her decision, The Lady sat 

down on two-thirds of the seat, 
spreading her furs gracefully around 
her; The Nigger, giving her even 
more room, pulled her worn jacket 
closer. Oblivious to all around her 
The Lady proceeded to give The Ma- 
tron an account of her recent travels. 
For blocks the travelogue continued. 
At the market house we were seeing 
London in the fog, at the next corner 
Paris in the early morning, at the 
Goucher dormatories Switzerland and 
the Alps. The car swung onto 25th 
Street during a stroll along the Rivi- 
era, lurched along Remington Avenue 
to the tune of Verdi in Rome, clanged 
across the viaduct during a conducted 
tour of the Scandanavian Peninsula. 
And then The Nigger stirred. It was 
her first move, and The Lady turned 
with an air demanding explanation 
of this disturbance. Quietly The Nig- 
ger rose, and, with a simple "Pardon 
me," stepped out into the aisle. The 
Lady did not lower herself to answer. 
Patrician nose in the air, never mov- 
ing an inch, she waited for The Nigger 
to get out of her way. Out in the 
aisle for one brief second The Nigger 
turned far a last look at The Lady. 
But in that brief second the two stood 
out against each other in an unforget- 
table relief, — The Lady and The Nig- 

ing button, button with a tray of fill- 
ed coffee cups. The only thing that 
either of them got out of it was a 
damp pair of trousers — the floor got 
most of the coffee.

Lifting Book Lids 

When I was a child I got hold of 
copy of Henry Van Dyke's The fl/. 
Flower, a collection of short stori es 
Since that time Van Dyke has be^ 
one of my favorite writers. 

The Blue Flower is especially 
at this time of the year, for it COll 
tains two Christmas stories whi^ 
have become classics. The The Ot/i e) , 
Wise Man especially lends itself ^ 
dramatization. Van Dyke based j 
story on old-country legends of 
fourth wise man who became separat 
ed from the Three Mi on theii 
journey to Bethlehem. Out of t}] { 
legend he wove an exquisite story 
which winds up in a dramatic and 
beautiful ending. 

The First Christmas Tree is 
on fact, which is carefully embroider, 
ed with fiction to make a powerful 
story of the triumph of Christianity 
over the old German gods.

The Hyperboreans 

By Panoptes 

Last time, Panoptes inquired 
whether the fuzz on Harold Moody's 
upper lip was a remnant of his last 
shave or a mustache. Nor was Pan- 
optes alone in his curiosity; in fact, 
it was shared by the male Hyper- 
boreans as a whole. However, in a 
few days it was definitely established 
that Moody was growing a mustache. 
Despite advice to the contrary, Moody 
believed he looked better with it, anu 
allowed it to flourish. On last Thurs- 
day, however, the denizens of the ad- 
building, took matters into their own 
hands. With the aid of Henry Erd- 
man and his "Schick," Mr. Moody 
was gently (?) shaved; that is, hau 
his mustache. The other half was al- 
lowed to remain so that Moody woula 
be able to decide whether he lookeu 
better with a mustache or without it. 

When he was not able to find his 
hat one day last week, Jake Umber- 
ger put up a notice requesting the 
borrower to return it because it was 
cold outside. The borrower, a sympa- 
thetic soul, obligingly put the hat on 
the steam pipes to warm it up be- 
fore notifying Umberger where it 
could be found. . . . Now ain't that 

While on the subject of warmth, 
some male Hyperboreans do not be- 
lieve that the school is furnishing 
enough heat, and have therefore tak- 
en the matters into their own hands 
and are heating the Men's D. S. K. 
themselves. Ed Powell was one of the 
beneficiaries of this group. While in- 
dulging in a strenuous game of cards, 
the group decided he looked cold. 
(Perhaps it was the dead-pan on 
him) , so they built a fire under his 
seat. Powell, however, did not appre- 
ciate this great service, and without 
a "Thank-you," moved to different 
quarters — My! My! Forgetting your 
manners, aren't you, Ed? 

When the lights began flickering 
in the Men's D. S. R. one day last 
week, someone yelled that it must be 
a short circuit. This created a brain 
storm in Jim Whitman, and a few 
seconds later, he yelled, "How long is 
a short-circuit?" . . . Notice Physico 

If, while sitting in the chemistry 
lecture room, one should suddenly hear 
the strumming of a guitar coming 
from below, it is just John Rex, the 
Hyperborean troubador in a musica. 
mood. It has been reported that while 
the music is soothing, it does not mix 
well with the Atomic Theory. But 
don't get discouraged, John, even the 
Atomic Theory can stand some swing; 
and as for me, the farther it is swung, 
the better. 

It is said that in the spring a young 
man's fancy turns to love. However, 
this does not leave the winter out oi 
the running. In fact, there are a few 
romances among the Hyperboreans at 
the present time. Panoptes has two 
in mind, one a fresh budding romance, 
the other, alas, a triangle, and to 
make matters worse, involving two 
women. . . . The fresh budding ro- 
mance refers to the affair between 
Joe Forber and an Annville High Co- 
ed. Your reporter has been informed 
that Joe had his first date with her 
last Saturday night. Let us know how 
you made out, Joe. . . . The triangle 
is a typical girl likes boy, boy likes 
girl (other girl) case. To this usually 
follows, girl (one) chases boy; boy 
runs from girl (1) and chases girl 
(2) ; reactions of second girl un- 
known, but suspected to be favorable 
for boy. The actors in this mixup 
are:— Girl (1) — Caroline Kissinger; 
Boy — Elmer Hackman; Girl (2) — a 
certain conserv. senior, name un- 

A new spark of interest in our Al-

(Continued from Page 1) 

:n into consideration. At least, I lik- 
ed it. 

Be that as it may, I find myself 
about to delve into a necessarily sup- 
erficial discussion of the various char- 
acterizations, interspersed with occa- 
•ional sidelights as they occur; and 
having abandoned the habit of pick- 
ing out stars and scapegoats as such, 
let me say that the order in which 1 
treat the characters is wholly chance 
and has no hidden significance. It is 
therefore useless to look for any. In 
fact, the order will be the same as 
that on the program. 

Miss Albert, as Mrs. Dearth, was 
about average. Her first and second 
scenes were quite satisfactory; not so 
the last, in which she fell short of 
her potentialities and was not quite 
convincing. Her enunciation was good 
enough throughout, but she spoiled 
he whole effect when, in the throes 
of realization near the end of the play, 
she uncorked a melodramatic arm- 
over-the-eyes gesture with such vigor 
that she almost missed Mr. Wert, in- 
to whose arms she was supposed to 
go. Otherwise she need not apologize 
for her actions, as she held up her end 
of several situations with creditable 

I liked Miss Cook as Joanna Trout. 
She showed feeling for lines — lines 
which she varied as the action re- 
quired with a voice which was strong 
and clear. Above all, she was con- 
vincing, except for possible small lap- 
ses which in no way detracted from 
the quality of her performance. 

The part of Mrs. Coade as played by 
Evelyn Miller was made the most of. 
Unobtrusive as her role was, she play- 
ed it well. Her voice was high-pitch- 
ed, as befits an elderly person — only 
occasionally did it become a handicap 
to pronunciation. 

Our Mabel Purdie, as taken by Miss 
Bowman, teamed well with her rival, 
Miss Cook. Miss Bowman did justice 
cn the whole, to the rich satire of the 
second scene; her stage presence stooa 
her in good stead always; and her 
\roice, while none too strong, was an 
ally rather than an enemy. Hers was 
a sympathetic treatment. 

Miss Wise, as Lady Caroline, 
squeezed under the wire with a bit to 
spare. To be sure, her haughtiness 
sometimes expressed itself in shakes 
of the head so violent as to arouse 
our fears for the welfare of her ver- 
tebrae, but she followed the part with- 
in reasonable limits and with fire and 
dash worthy of the character. 

Our first male character is a puz- 
zling one. Mr. Bender did right well 
by the role of Matey and demonstrat- 
ed quite conclusively that he knew 
what it was all about, yet at mom- 
ents he failed to be as impressive as 
he deserved to be. Possibly his stage 
presence was at fault; at any rate, 
his portrayal falls more or less de- 
cisively on the positive side of the 
ledger. His efforts were not wasted. 

Nor were those of Ralph Lloyd, 
who I thought played Lob very well. 
Character parts are often as difficult 
as they come, and by way of compli- 
ment I can only say that Mr. Lloyd 
maintained a consistent characteriza- 
tion; and he got away with the flow- 
er-caressing scene more nicely than I, 
for one, either expected or hoped. 

For some reason or other Mr. Kauff- 
man, who was cast as John Purdie, 
refused to let go his restraint and rip 
into his part. I have very little doubt 
that he could have done so had he 
wished; he knew what his lines meant 
and occasionally showed as much. The 
fact remains, however, that he lacked 
life. Be it said here on his behalf 
that some of his speeches were diffi- 
cult of proper treatment even by the 
most accomplished amateur. 

To Mr. Jenkins, as Mr. Coade, must 
go a salute for his fortitude and 

courage in braving a sore throat which 
had him confined to his bed to go on 
and keep the show going; his contri- 
bution was a portrayal which was 
quite good. Being unwilling to at- 
tempt a further evaluation of his act- 
ing under the existing circumstances, 
I shall content myself with what has 
been said. 

Probably the biggest disappoint- 
ment of the entire show was Mr. Wert 
as Will Dearth, for while he tried 
heroically to get into the mood his 
was a case of simply miscing the 
mark. His conception of an inebriat- 
ed tippler is considerably at variance 
with my own, as I was under the im- 
pression that hip-swaying was confin- 
ed to the activities of that group who 
were brought, incompletely clad, into 
the public eye by one Gypsy Rose Lee. 
He redeemed himself to tome extent 
in the second scene, but even here he 
failed to catch the magical mood of 

Margaret, played by Louise Saylor, 
turned out to be a charming compo- 
site of moonbeams and energy with 
a dash of wistfulness and a refresh- 
ing bit of little girl thrown in. 
Through her the play came to life; 
she was, in spite of her last line to 
the contrary, the very essence of 

"might-have-been." Suffice it to £.ay 
that I liked her very much. 

Much of the credit for the success 
of the play—and it was certainly not 
a failure — must go to Dr. Struble, 
who directed, and Dr. Stine, who as- 
sisted him. They began behind the 
over-popularized eight ball, and I 
rather believe that if their innermost 
thoughts for a time could be known 
they more or less expected to stay 
there; but Monday night they emer- 
ged from hiding with a performance 
which, as I have said, was a source 
of credit to them. They were in large 
measure responsible for the metamor- 

The stage crew went on a vacation 
and confined their activities to pro- 
viding two unelaborate yet adequate 
sets. In the first place, there are 
technical difficulties standing in the 
way of any attempt at transplanting 
a forest onto our stage which are at 
present impossible of solution with 
our facilities; and in the second 
place the other set was quite suffi- 
cient for the action of the play. 

It could have been better, but I defy 
any one to name a play which was 
perfection; and it could have been 
much worse.
